Kent Police cars and other ambulances were called to the scene.
No patients were on board and neither ambulance crew members nor the occupants of the other vehicle suffered serious injuries.

"It was en route to another incident in the area at which SECAmb was already on the scene. Another vehicle was assigned to back up the clinicians already at the scene of this emergency.
"No one required hospital treatment as a result of the RTC. The driver of the other vehicle and the crew were all treated and assessed at the scene for minor injuries.
"RTCs such as this involving our vehicles are thankfully rare, but we take safety extremely seriously and are looking into the circumstances surrounding the incident."
