A 80 year old woman is still in hospital, after a crash involving five cars last Thursday in Newhaven.

An 80-year-old woman from Piddinghoe, suffered serious back and chest injuries, in the Newhaven collision.

The woman remains in hospital in a stable condition.

A 58-year-old woman was also taken to hospital suffering shock and possibly a medical episode at the wheel.

Both were taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton.

The crash happened at around 12.45pm on Thursday (24 May).

It involved two westbound vehicles – a Ford C-Max and a Citroen Dispatch – and three travelling east – a Vauxhall Agila, a Renault Clio and a Fiat Doblo.

The Citroen was driven by a Seaford man, the Renault by a woman from Rottingdean and the Fiat by a man from Peacehaven.

All three were uninjured, the road was closed for almost two hours.

Witnesses are being sought by police to the collision on the A259 at Newhaven.

Police would like to hear from anyone who may have dash-cam footage of what happened at the junction with Drove Road, close to the approach to the port’s swing-bridge.

Anyone who can help police are asked to contact officers online or by phoning 101, quoting serial 548 of 24/05.
