Bean Car accident


Traffic was delayed after a car flipped over during an accident in Bean this morning.

The crash happened in Southfleet Road, Bean, at about 10.30am causing heavy traffic through the village.

Paramedics from South East Coast Ambulance attended the incident outside Bean Village GP Surgery.

A spokesman said: “The driver was treated at the scene after suffering minor injuries, abrasions to his right hand and forearm, the passenger was uninjured. Neither suffered neck or back pain and they declined transfer to hospital.”

It came as traffic built up on the M25 following a four vehicle crash in Essex at about 9.50am which caused a six mile tailback between the Dartford Tunnel and junction 3 of the M25 motorway at the Swanley Interchange.
