Man and woman in 20s die as A2 closed after serious incident

The A2 is closed in Bexley after a serious accident this morning (Saturday 8th October).

A man and woman in their 20s are believed to have died after incident.

Anyone with information should call the SCIU appeal line on 01622 798538, or email, quoting reference RY/MS/111/22.

The air ambulance arrived on scene to assist around 10:30am.

The road is closed between the A223 in Bexley and the A282/M25 junction. Long queues are evident across the area.

The incident will take some time to clear.

Police have offered a statement:

“At around 10.30am on Saturday 8 October 2022, a black BMW M3 was travelling on the A2 towards the slip road for Dartford Heath, when it left the carriageway and overturned.

Our officers attended the scene along with South East Coast Ambulance Service, Kent Fire and Rescue Service and the air ambulance.

Two passengers, a man and a woman in their 20s, were pronounced deceased at the scene. The driver was taken to a London hospital with serious injuries.

Our Serious Collision Investigation Unit is carrying out enquiries and officers are appealing to anyone who saw what happened, or has relevant dashcam footage, to come forward.

In particular, investigators would like to speak to anybody who saw the vehicle travelling along the coastbound carriageway of the A2 from #Bexley towards Dartford Heath prior to the collision.”

Running a site alone takes time and a fair bit of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my living costs as a private renter.

    • Correct terminology in text but not in headline, it’s an RTI John not a RTA. Such incidents are rarely ‘accidents’ and not classed as such by emergency services. An ‘accident’ is suggestive of an event that is random and could not have been prevented. Nearly all road and work injuries,fatalities and illnesses are preventable hence classed as incidents first off. Should road safety be the prime consideration when driving, most incidents could indeed be termed ‘accidents’, but most are caused by poor standard or reckless or dangerous driving.(sadly)
