Investigators are appealing for witnesses to a serious injury collision in Gravesend

Investigators are appealing for witnesses to a serious injury collision in Gravesend.

The incident took place at around 10pm on Friday 14 June 2019 on Old Road East where a silver Mercedes C-Class was involved in a collision with a pedestrian.

The pedestrian, a 17-year-old girl from Gravesend, has been taken to a London hospital where her condition is described as serious.

It is understood the Mercedes was also involved in a collision with a black Mini Countryman and a parked car in Old Road East, and also a parked car in Lower Higham Road.

Officers investigating the collision have arrested a 47-year-old man from Gravesend in connection with the incident. He remains in police custody.

Officers are working to establish the circumstances of the collision and are urging anyone who saw the Mercedes travelling from Gravesend town centre into Old Road East and onto Lower Higham Road, or who have dash cam footage from the area around the time, to contact them.

They would also like to hear from anybody whose car received collision damage whilst parked overnight in these areas.
