Firefighters helped to release a man who was trapped in a van following a crash involving a car and two vans on the coast-bound carriageway of the M2 earlier today.
The collision happened just before Junction 5 for the A249 and Sittingbourne at around 9:15am.
Crews used hydraulic rescue equipment to free the man, who was then passed into the care of the South East Coast Ambulance Service.
This collision followed the incident on the A249 overnight, which was shut northbound between the A2 Key Street Roundabout and the B2005 Grovehurst Road for most of the morning. Kent Police were carrying out investigation work on the collision between a car and van, which happanned at around 11.50pm last night.
It's believed that a man and two women were rushed to hospital with serious injuries and that a man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of drink driving following the incident.
