A boy was taken to hospital with head injuries after crashing his bike into a car in Temple Hill.

An air ambulance was called to Cavell Crescent shortly before 5.30pm on Wednesday after the boy appeared to crash into a stationary car.

However, the chopper was not needed as the boy was taken to King's College Hospital by road.

A Kent Police spokesman said: "Kent Police was called at 5.29pm on Wednesday 13 June regarding a collision in Cavell Crescent, Dartford involving two cars and a cycle.

"Officers and South East Coast Ambulance Service attended the scene where a boy received medical treatment for a reported head injury.

"He was taken to a London hospital for further medical attention."

A spokesman from South East Coast Ambulance Service confirmed the Air Ambulance Service had attended the scene, but "turned around on arrival" as it was not needed.

He said: "We were called to Cavell Crescent at 5.25 to reports of a collision. It appeared the boy had gone into the back of a car that was stationary.

"The boy was treated at the scene before being taken by road to King's College Hospital. He suffered head and facial injuries and was conscious prior to leaving the scene."
