Police are searching for a driver after a wall was demolished in a late-night crash.
Officers were called to Kennington in Ashford after two men were seen fleeing from a van that crashed into a street light before smashing into a low roadside wall.
Residents reported being startled by a loud crash at about 10pm last night when the yellow Ford van mounted the pavement at the junction between Beecholme Drive and Rectory Way.
A witness reported seeing bricks and shrapnel scattered around the road, with some having hit parked cars nearby.
"We looked outside after hearing the crash and saw two men running away from the scene," they added.
"There was debris everywhere and a few of our neighbours' cars got hit. Police and dog units arrived to search for the driver shortly afterwards."
The vehicle, which was taxed but had an expired MOT, was left with the engine running and lights on.
A police spokesman said: "We were called to a report that a van had collided with a wall in Beecholme Drive, Kennington, shortly after 10pm yesterday.
"The driver of the vehicle was not at the scene when officers attended and inquiries are ongoing to locate them."
