A car has flipped onto its roof on the Old Shoreham Road in Hove following a three-vehicle crash this afternoon.

Emergency services are on the scene, and paramedics treated a woman in her 50s for chest injuries before taking her to the Royal Sussex.

Police closed the road at the junction with Sackville Road.

A police spokeswoman said: “Police received reports of a three vehicle collision in Old Shoreham Road, Hove, just before 1pm on Friday (28 September).

“One car is reported to be on its roof and emergency services are currently on scene.

“Injuries are currently unknown.

“The road has been closed at the junction with Sackville Road.”

A spokesman for South East Coast Ambulance Service said: “At 12.58pm we responded with an ambulance to a road traffic collision, where a car rolled over, on the Old Shoreham Road, Hove.

“A woman in her 50s was taken to the Royal Sussex Hospital in Brighton with chest injuries.”

A spokeswoman for East Sussex Fire and Rescue said: “Firefighters attended a three-vehicle collision along the Old Shoreham Road, in Hove, at 1.02pm and assisted with making the scene safe.

“No-one was trapped and one casualty was left in the hands of paramedics.”

    Ironic, the large word FAST on the side of the ambulance.

    Traffic indeed needs to go slower on that road. Improvements similar to those in the western section need to be made there, and this would also mean that areas to the north of the road do not appear as cut off from Poets’ Corner (which isd in fact a few minutes’ walk from the lower part of Hangleton).

    That should of course be “eastern section”.
