Staff from a car and an ambulance treated the man, aged in his 30s, at the scene before he was taken to Medway Maritime Hospital in Gillingham for further checks.
It comes just weeks after Deborah Roberts, 42, and her eight-year-old son Marshall died on Tuesday, July 1, following a crash on the bridge leading to calls for the crossing to be made safer.
