Four people were injured in a terrifying collision between an ambulance and a cement truck.

A CRASH that killed a paramedic in an ambulance closed part of a commuter road today, causing long delays for motorists.

The medic died of injuries sustained in the accident on the A21 near Sevenoaks, Kent, at around 8.15 p.m. yesterday, which involved an ambulance and a cement lorry.

Three more people were injured as a result of this incident.

While recovery work was underway, the road remained closed southbound today.

Initially, southbound queues stretched all the way back to Chipstead, Kent.

According to Kent Live, a diversion routed motorists through Sevenoaks and Seal on the A25 before rejoining the dual-carriageway at Riverhill.

Because it connects with the M25 near Chipstead, the A21 is frequently used as a major commuter route for those heading into the capital.

Kent Police have launched an investigation and are seeking witnesses, particularly anyone with dashcam footage of the incident.

Last night, the air ambulance was reportedly dispatched to the scene.

“Dashcam footage and witnesses are being sought following a collision on the A21’s coastbound carriageway in Tonbridge,” a police spokesman said.

“Kent Police were dispatched to the scene at 8.16 p.m. on Wednesday, January 5, 2022, following a report of an ambulance colliding with a cement lorry.

“The incident resulted in the injuries of four people, two of whom were seriously injured, and an air ambulance was dispatched.”

“Officers with the Serious Collision Investigation Unit have begun an investigation and are asking anyone who has dashcam footage from before the incident to come forward.”

Officers are also asking anyone who witnessed the collision to contact them.

“Please call 01622 798538 and quote RYCS0322 if you have any information that can help with the investigation.”
