Hunt on for Audi Driver After Fleeing Scene of Serious A2 Accident

Descriptions released of man and woman believed to be involved in the accident.

Kent Police are intensifying their efforts to track down a motorist and his passenger following an incident on the A2 near Dartford, which resulted in serious injuries to a passenger and left others hurt. The collision, occurring on the Watling Street coastbound carriageway between the A296 and Ebbsfleet junctions around 10:40 pm on Friday, 16 February 2024, involved three vehicles: a black Ford Fiesta, a blue Audi S3, and a blue MG HS.

Tragically, a passenger from the Ford Fiesta was airlifted to a London hospital with serious injuries, while the driver and another passenger received treatment for less severe injuries. The situation escalated when it was discovered that the driver of the blue Audi S3 had abandoned the scene before police patrols could arrive.

The authorities are now keenly searching for the Audi driver and his female passenger, both described as white and in their 20s, who were last observed walking away from the accident site. The male is noted for his slim build and short blonde hair, whereas the female is described as having a medium build with shoulder-length blonde hair.
