Police block off Millmead Road in Margate and biker airlifted to hospital after crash

Emergency services at the scene in Millmead Road in Margate

A motorcyclist has been airlifted to King’s College Hospital in London and a road is blocked off in Margate this evening (October 24) following a serious crash.

Police and fire crews attended the scene in Millmead Road near the former King Edward pub after 5pm. The motorcyclist’s injuries are believed to be life threatening.

A Kent Police spokesman said: “Kent Police was called at 5.13pm to a report of a collision involving a motorbike and a car in Millmead Road, Margate. Officers from Kent Police’ Serious Collision Investigation Unit are currently at the scene and one person has been taken to a London hospital by air ambulance to be treated for injuries, believed to be life threatening.

“Road closures are currently in place while the incident is attended to.”


    • How long have there been 4 lanes in this road? Must have been widened in the last few weeks.
      Any serious collision requires the road to be closed.

    • Someone’s in critical condition and fighting for their life and you’re concerned about there being road closures? Wow.

  1. A motorcyclist was taken to hospital within 50yrds of there on Millmead Rd by the junction with Laleham just a few months ago in July, and another motorcyclist tragically killed just a bit further along college Rd in April after hitting a van going the opposite way, leaving the pillion in a London hospital. Is there something wrong with this road or is it excessive speed involved? There seems to be a pattern emerging on that road.

  2. Would a suggestion be some speed bumps? May help drivers go slower and reduce the risk of crashes?
    My thoughts are with you and your family ash, pull through lad xx

  3. See a lot of them speeding & roaring their engines showing off. One yesterday decided he would overtake the cars heading to Westwood Cross-putting himself at risk of being hit by traffic coming the other way, he had already announced his arrival by throttling his engine & letting out a giant cloud of fumes.
