A motorcyclist came off his bike and suffered a broken collarbone in a suspected road rage incident in Brighton.

Sussex Police said: “Police are appealing for witnesses following an argument between two motorists on the A23 in Brighton near the junction with Ditchling Rise.

“Officers were called at around 2pm on Sunday 13 September to a report that a motorcyclist had come off his bike after a verbal altercation with a driver.

“A 42-year-old man from Kent suffered a broken collarbone and was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital.”

PC Simon Friend said: “The vehicles involved were a blue BMW 7 series and a white Yamaha R1 sportsbike.

“The Ace Café reunion bike run was being held that day so it would have been busy and we would like to hear from anyone who may have been in the area and seen something.”

Any witnesses are asked to phone Sussex Police on 101 or email

    I hope this chap recovers swiftly. I would desperately love to see Policing of Brightons roads. The city police are too busy too and the road police are off up the A/M23. The roads have pretty much become a free for all whilst they have become a lot busier.
