A motorist who was killed when his car veered off the road and collided with a fence has been named by police.
John Perkins, 42, of King Edward Road, Gillingham, was killed in the crash in Rochester Road, Cuxton on Sunday night.
Emergency services were called to the scene at 9pm including two fire engines, two ambulances, a South East Coast Ambulance Service nurse and a rapid response vehicle. But the paramedics’ attempts to save Mr Perkins were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead at the scene. There were no passengers in the car.
Medway Police believe Mr Perkins was driving from Cuxton towards Snodland when he lost control of his Black Peugoet 306 and hit a parked vehicle before leaving the road. It is thought no other motorists were involved in the accident.
Officers are appealing for witnesses to come forward.
