The A27 was closed for two hours after a head on crash involving two drivers from Hove.

Both drivers and two passengers – a woman and a baby girl from Brighton – were taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital last night (Tuesday 5 September).

Sussex Police said: “Police are appealing for witnesses following a head-on collision on the A27 Lewes Road near Beddingham.

“Officers were called to the incident at about 7.15pm on Tuesday 5 September.

“A black Fiat Punto, driven westbound by a 52-year-old woman from Hove, collided with a grey Citroen Berlingo, driven by a 40-year-old man also from Hove.

“Both drivers, as well as a 25-year-old woman and her seven-month-old baby girl who were front seat passengers in the Citroen, were taken to Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton with minor injuries.

“The road was closed until about 9.40pm while the matter was investigated and the vehicles were recovered – and officers would like to thank road users for their patience.

“Anyone not already spoken to who saw either vehicle being driven in the area prior to the collision, or anyone with dash cam footage of the incident, is asked to email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk quoting 1269 of 05/09.”
