Police and an ambulance crew have attended a crash in Margate this evening (January 6).

Two cars have been involved in the collision at the Victoria Lights in Ramsgate Road. It is understood police closed the area off while the incident was dealt with but the road has now reopened.

A Kent Police spokesman said: “Kent Police received a report of a two-vehicle collision at 4.52pm.

“Officers attended the scene in Ramsgate Road, Margate. No injuries were reported, although one person was taken to a local hospital as a precaution.

“Highways officers also attended to clear the carriageway due to a fluid leak from one of the vehicles. The road was clear by 6.25pm.”

  1. The Margate/Ramsgate Road is known as the worst road in Britain but Kent County Council do nothing much to make it safer along it’s length.
    The Victoria lights cross roads are a mess. They need safety measures to stop vehicles crossing paths in opposite directions, such as on the Newington Rd at the junction with Allenby Rd and Stirling Way. There is not enough sight to see oncoming vehicles where these collisions take place at Victoria lights. Drivers are forced to take a chance then the odd one gets hit, thus it is dangerous.
