A man killed in a car crash on the A2 has been locally named Denny Wiltshire.
Tributes are pouring in for the young man, who died after the crash near Dover last night.
Only in his 20s, Mr Wiltshire was a passenger in a Volkswagen T-Roc driven by his friend when it collided with a tree at around 8pm.
The vehicle was traveling on the road towards the coast near Shepherdswell when the tragic accident occurred.
Both sides of the A2 were temporarily closed after the crash, with the coastal roadway not reopening until 3:10 a.m.
The driver of the vehicle, a man in his 20s, was reportedly taken to William Harvey Hospital in Ashford, where he still has serious neck injuries.
Many of Mr Wiltshire’s friends have taken to social media to pay tribute to the ‘amazing’ man.
A friend said: “I am devastated. Denny was amazing.
Another friend said: “Another taken too early, he was a very polite young man, he will be sadly missed by many.”
A third said he “will never be forgotten”.
“Denny was a great guy,” they continued. “And it was so nice to everyone who knew him.”
Kent Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit is investigating the circumstances of the crash and would like to hear from anyone with information.
Officers would also like to hear from anyone traveling on the A2 heading for the coast who has footage of the collision or footage of the vehicle being driven in the moments leading up to the incident.
