M2 crash in Kent: Police appeal after man dies

Police investigating a fatal crash on the M2 in Kent have urged the driver of a white motorhome to come forward.

An 80-year-old car driver was killed and his passenger suffered what are thought to be serious injuries in the crash between a lorry and two cars.

A 67-year-old woman driving the second car was taken to hospital with minor injuries. The lorry driver was unhurt.

The crash happened on the coastbound carriageway between Rochester and Gillingham on Wednesday.

The 80-year-old man, who died at the scene at 13:00 BST, is believed to be from the Swale area. His passenger was airlifted to King's College Hospital in south London.

Insp Martin Stevens, from Kent Police, said: "We have spoken to a number of people who were in the area at the time of the collision and their information has been very helpful.

"We would particularly like to trace the driver of a white motorhome and ask that they get in touch as they might have important information about this tragic incident."
