A cyclist was seriously injured in after an accident with a van outside a primary school this afternoon.
Both the road and pavements on Elm Grove were cordoned off from Wellington Street to Bonchurch Street this afternoon.
A Sussex Police spokesman said: “Just before 2pm on Friday (June 10) police responded to a collision between a cyclist and a van. The road was closed for around two hours while paramedics attended the scene.
“The cyclist was taken to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
“Anyone with dashcam footage or who witnessed the collision is asked to report it to police by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or call 101 quoting serial number 685 of 10/06.”
A spokesman for South East Coast Ambulance Service said: “I can confirm that SECAmb was called shortly before 2pm today to reports of an RTC involving a vehicle and a pedestrian on Elm Grove, Brighton.
“Ambulance crews attended the scene and the pedestrian was assessed and treated before being taken to Royal Sussex County Hospital.”
Parents at the school were allowed through the cordon to pick up their children, but only from the north side.
Buses were diverted eastbound via Southover Street and Queens Park Road and westbound via Ryde Road and Hartington Road.
