A male pedestrian is being treated in a Brighton hospital for serious injuries after a crash on the A259 coast road.

The road was still closed during the evening rush hour, with drivers warned about delays, diversions and tailbacks in both directions.

Sussex Police said: “At 3.45pm on Monday 26 July a car and a male pedestrian collided at the junction of Downland Avenue and the A259 South Coast Road, Peacehaven.

“The pedestrian sustained serious injuries and was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton for treatment.

“Anyone who saw what happened is asked to contact the police either online at or by calling 101, quoting Operation Mastermind.”

    I hope the pedestrian makes a full and quick recovery.

    I do find it ‘interesting’ that there are no comments about the carnage involving motor vehicles that occur daily. Anything involving a bicycle or scooter etc on the other hand…
