Four people have been arrested after a motorcyclist was killed in a crash last night.
Emergency services were called after the collision between a Honda CBR1000 and a blue Citroen C4 Picasso, which happened at around 9.45pm in Swale Way, Sittingbourne.
A 26-year-old man from Whitstable died at the scene after the two vehicles collided near the entrance to Milton Creek fishing lakes.
A second person on the bike with him, a 31-year-old man, was taken to hospital with serious injuries, not believed to be life threatening.
Following the incident three men, aged 18, 23 and 32, and all from the Sittingbourne area, were arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
A woman, 34, also from the town, was arrested on suspicion of perverting the cause of justice. All four remain in custody while inquiries continue.
Two of the suspects were detained last night while two others were arrested today.
Officers from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit want to talk to anyone who witnessed the incident or who saw the car in the moments before the crash.
A police spokesman added: "In particular, officers would like to talk to anyone who was at the Milton Creek fishing lakes who may have information about the occupants of the car."
The force was not able to release any more details about the circumstances of the collision.
An air ambulance landed at Milton Recreation Ground, off Vicarage Road, at around 10.40pm.
Meanwhile, the police helicopter was reported to be circling Swale Way at a similar time, assisting officers on foot. The road was closed while they carried out enquiries.
