Kent Police officers, investigating a fatal collision on the M2 earlier today (Sunday 27th November), are appealing for witnesses to come forward.
At around 6.14am a red Nissan Qashqai was involved in a collision with a red Mercedes-Benz C 200 AMG between junction six and five on the London-bound carriageway.
Kent Police and South East Coast Ambulance Service attended the scene and the driver of the Nissan Qashqai, a woman in her 50s, was pronounced deceased at the scene.
A 40-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and drink driving.
Officers are keen to talk to the driver of a light-coloured van who may have seen the Mercedes pass them prior to the collision. They believe the motorist may have important information which can assist their investigation.
The carriageway was closed following the collision and was reopened at around 4pm this afternoon. The woman’s next of kin were informed about the incident.
Officers from Kent Police's Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU) would like to hear from anyone who saw what happened, or who has relevant dashcam or CCTV footage.
Drivers can call the SCIU appeal line at Kent Police Headquarters on 01622 798 538, or can email firstname.lastname@example.org, quoting reference AH/SC/131/22.
