Written by on 26 May 2017


Officers investigating a fatal collision near Sittingbourne are renewing their appeal for witnesses.

At 9.55pm on Thursday 18 May 2017, a white Mitsubishi L200 truck travelling on the A2 London Road in Newington was in collision with a parked unattended vehicle and a boundary wall near to the junction of Playstool Road.

One of the passengers of the truck, a 17-year-old boy from Medway, died at the scene.

Three other people suffered injuries and were taken to hospital.

Officers are particularly keen to speak with the driver of a dark coloured, medium sized hatch-back style car which passed through the scene.

It was travelling from the direction of Keycol Hill towards Rainham – the same direction as the L200.

The driver of the vehicle is not suspected of any wrongdoing however officers believe they may have important information on the incident.

Anyone who witnessed the collision, or who saw the vehicle prior to the collision is asked to contact Kent Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 01622 798538 quoting MC/DH/102/17.
