A main road was shut for several hours as people were cut free from cars following a crash in Southborough.
The A26 London Road at Bidborough was closed until around 8.30pm last night following the accident involving two cars at 3.45pm.
Police, fire and ambulance crews were called, and the air ambulance landed nearby.
Two fire engines were sent, with firefighters using hydraulic rescue equipment to remove the roof of both cars to free the casualties trapped inside.
They left at just before 5pm, but police remained there along with Kent Highways for several hours due to an oil spill.
Drivers faced long delays on both approaches, stretching back to Mount Ephraim in Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge High Street.
A police spokesman said today: "At 15.33 yesterday we responded to a two car RTC on the A26 near Bidborough with three ambulances and a car.
"The Air Ambulance also attended. A 78-year-old woman was taken to Tunbridge Wells Hospital with chest injuries and a three year old boy was also taken to hospital with leg pain.
"Both were transport by ambulance. Another adult woman was also treated on scene but not conveyed."
