Man fight­ing for life after crash

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Front Page -

A man is fight­ing for his life after a multi-ve­hi­cle pile-up on the A299 Thanet Way which closed the road for 10 hours.

Po­lice say a re­cov­ery truck had bro­ken down a mile from the St Ni­cholas round­about and was strad­dling the hard shoul­der and lane one of the Lon­don- bound car­riage­way when it was hit from be­hind by a black Vaux­hall As­tra.

The car caught fire and emer­gency ser­vices in­clud­ing fire fight­ers and an air am­bu­lance were quickly on the scene.

The driver, a 25-year-old man from Sit­ting­bourne, was air­lifted to a Lon­don hos­pi­tal where his in­juries are said to be life threat­en­ing. No­body else was in­jured.

It hap­pened at around 9.50pm on Mon­day and also in­volved a blue Peu­geot 406.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should call 01622 798538, quot­ing DS/DH/226/17
