Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

An in­quest heard how a man died when the car he was in was in­volved in a head-on col­li­sion on the M20.

Mo­hammed Chowd­hury was a pas­sen­ger in the car, which was trav­el­ling the wrong way on the mo­tor­way in the early hours of last Satur­day.

The court heard the car was in the third lane of the Lon­don­bound car­riage­way, be­tween junc­tions 4 for Ley­bourne and 3 for Bor­ough Green and the M26, when it col­lided with an on­com­ing ve­hi­cle, trav­el­ling in the right di­rec­tion. The 32-year-old, from Lon­don, died at the scene. A post-mortem found he had suf­fered mul­ti­ple in­juries.

Pa­tri­cia Hard­ing, se­nior coro­ner for Mid-Kent and Med­way, ad­journed the in­quest un­til Tues­day, July 4, but noted that this date would be de­pen­dent on the po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

The driver of the car, a 37-yearold from Or­p­ing­ton, was ar­rested and bailed un­til Mon­day, June 12.
