A man has been left seriously injured after being stabbed following a crash that left a car on its roof.
Police, paramedics and fire crews were called to the scene of the attack in Stanley Road, Herne Bay, just after 7am today.
Officials say the man was stabbed following a two-car collision along the route - which shocked residents describe as a "quiet area".
The street remains sealed off as detectives probe the circumstances of the incident.
A police spokesman said: "We were called to Stanley Road following a report of a two-car collision followed by an assault.
"A man was taken to a London hospital with an injury consistent with a stab wound.
"Our investigation is ongoing and a section of Stanley Road is currently closed, as well as an alleyway off Canterbury Road, while officers conduct enquiries."
It is believed a resident - who was woken by the crash outside their home - helped the injured man until ambulances arrived.
His injuries are not thought to be life threatening.
A local from nearby Spenser Road told KentOnline: "I noticed it at 7.20am.
"I was busy at the table and then I saw lots of police cars, ambulances, fire engines coming in.
"It's just an ordinary, quiet residential area, so there's nothing like this that this goes on.
"I'm shocked this has happened here."
Officers are urging anyone who witnessed the incident or has information about it to call them on 01843 222289, quoting the reference number 03-0150.
