Two hurt as car falls off fly­over

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

Emer­gency crews de­scended on the A2 after a car plunged 30ft off a fly­over onto a cy­cle path.

The ve­hi­cle, car­ry­ing a man and a woman, ca­reered through a bar­rier on the dual car­riage­way near Wincheap, Can­ter­bury, at 11.30am on Mon­day.

The woman suf­fered head, arm and leg in­juries and was flown to the Wil­liam Har­vey Hospi­tal in Ash­ford by air am­bu­lance while the man was taken by road.

Sean Vin­cent, 25, was re­turn­ing home from the shops when he heard a huge bang.

He said: “I thought some­thing had come off the back of a lorry and then I saw smoke and just ran straight over to see if any­one was hurt. It was shock­ing, there was petrol around the car and the en­gine had come out.”
