A pregnant woman who was taken to hospital after a hit and run has now been released.
Police were called to Castlemaine Avenue, Gillingham at 7.30pm on Sunday following reports of a two-car crash.
Ambulance crews were called at 7.40pm to treat the pregnant victim.
She was taken to Medway Maritime as a precaution after some suspected abdominal bruising but has now been released.
One vehicle was said to have made off before police arrived, and its number plate was left at the scene.
As well as the pregnant woman, a 54-year-old woman and the male driver in the other car were also treated for their injuries.
An SECAmb spokesman said the man was experiencing back pains.
Police inquiries are on-going.
People living in the area reported hearing a police helicopter after the incident.
It comes not long after John O'Donohue, also known as Hedges, was left critically ill with multiple injuries after being mown down in a hit-and-run, in the same place.
Detectives launched a murder investigation after the 33-year-old, from Gillingham, passed away in hospital in January.
Jake Austin, 25, of Priestfield Road, Gillingham, has been charged with his murder.
He has been remanded in custody until April 17 with a preliminary trial date on July 21.
