A Kent Police spokesperson added: “Kent Police received a report of a collision involving two vehicles at 4.24pm.

“Officers attended the scene in Margate Road, Ramsgate with the South East Coast Ambulance Service as one person had reported an injury. The road was clear by around 5.50pm.”


  1. This is the sort of thing that terrifies me as a cyclist! How can anyone get out of control whilst driving a potential lethal machine?

    • How ironic, yesterday as I was cycling along Margate Road towards Ramsgate, a car suddenly shot out of a junction to my right just meters away! I shouted and waved an arm, and the car managed to stop just in time, and the woman driver, it has to be said, gave me the finger, Duurh!
