By Sean McPolin

Floral tributes have been laid for a man who died when his Mercedes overturned.

The victim, who was in his 30s and from Gravesend, was declared dead at the scene of the accident by the Three Crutches Roundabout, on the A2 Watling Street, at 2.30am, on Tuesday, February 5.

Cards and flowers were placed by the Strood roundabout.

One message read: "May you forever rest in peace little bro. Until we meet again."

While another said: "You may have left too soon, but you will always be in our hearts. Farewell my friend, love Taj."

Police are appealing for witnesses who may have seen the silver Mercedes C220 in the moments before the collision or may have dash-cam footage.

The road was shut for hours before reopening by 10am.

Lee Buckingham, who lives on Sharfleet Drive, which backs onto the roundabout was woken up by the emergency services, whilst his son heard a bang.

"There must have been 20 cars out there," he said.

"We were up because there were lights. I would say there were there from 2am."

Any witnesses should call the police appeal line on 01622 798538 quoting RY/SM/022/19.
