Traffic is thought to be on the move again

Motorists faced long delays on the A2 on Thursday afternoon after a crash on the Londonbound carriageway.

Emergency services were called to the crash between the Black Prince Interchange and the Danson turn off at around 4pm.

The accident sparked queues tailing back to Dartford as crews worked to move the vehicles involved.

A Met Police spokesperon said: “We were called at 3.52pm on Thursday to reports of a collision between a lorry and a car.”

London Ambulance Service added: “We sent an incident response officer and an ambulance crew to the scene, with the first of our medics arriving in under four minutes.

“We treated two patients at the scene for minor injuries but they did not need to go hospital.”

Transport for London initially said the carriageway had been “blocked” by the accident.

A spokesperson from TfL issued this update: “The London-bound A2 is on the move again. Police have moved the vehicles involved. Residual congestion from Dartford though.”
