The driver of a lorry involved in the crash was arrested

A 21-year-old woman has died after she was involved in a crash at the Dartford Crossing on Friday.

Emergency services rushed to the Kent side of the QEII Bridge after the woman’s Audi A1 collided with a commercial lorry.

Following the Essex driver’s death, police are now appealing for witnesses to the crash, which closed the bridge for nine hours causing long delays.

A 25-year-old man from Croydon arrested on the scene has been bailed pending further enquiries.

A spokesperson from Kent Police said: “Officers from Kent Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit would like to hear from anyone who saw the lorry, which is white in colour with red and blue writing on the side, and which was towing a drawbar trailer, in the moments before the collision.

“Anyone with information can call Kent Police’ Serious Collision Investigating Unit on 01622 798538 or email sciu.td@kent.pnn.police.uk quoting reference number DJ/250/17.”
