Sheppey: Air ambulance called to crash in Lower Road, Minster

By Chloe Holmwood

A man has been taken to hospital after a crash which closed one of Sheppey's main roads for the third time in a week.

Emergency services, including an air ambulance, were sent to the two-car accident at the junction of Lower Road and Scocles Road in Minster.

It happened shortly after midday.

A police spokesman said officers were joined by crews from the Kent Fire and Rescue Service and the South East Coast Ambulance Service.

The Lower Road was closed while both vehicles were recovered and an oil spillage was cleared.

It reopened at 3.20pm.

An ambulance spokesman said a man had been taken to Medway Maritime Hospital.

"Initial injuries reported included a head injury," he added.

The air ambulance was also called, but medics only assisted ambulance crews before returning to base at Redhill.

This crash is the third to have happened on the Lower Road this week.

Police had to close the road twice on Wednesday because of two crashes, which happened within hours of each other.
