A spokesman for Kent Police said: " Officers and South East Coast Ambulance Service attended the scene where a woman was treated for injuries that are described as minor. She was taken to a local hospital for further medical attention."

Harry Bartlett was driving his Artic van when the accident happened.

He said: “From what I could tell is that the silver Audi was heading out of Maidstone and must of been doing some considerable speed, lost control and must of hit the car ahead of him, he then bounced off of that car and then flew into the blue KA that was to my two o’clock which then smashed into me."
