A 20-year-old driver suffered serious head injuries after crashing in to a car on the Ersham Road near Hailsham last night (Wednesday).

The accident happened at around 11.30pm when a silver BMW car travelling on the B2104 Ersham Road between Stone Cross and Hailsham left the road and struck a tree.

The driver, from near Chiddingly, was trapped in the vehicle until he could be freed by East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service personnel.

He was then taken by ambulance to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton, where he has been detained for treatment.

A spokesperson at Sussex Police said this morning, “The road was closed to traffic for more than three hours while emergency services were at the scene, a half mile north of the World of Water.

“Anyone who saw what happened or noticed the BMW being driven shortly before the crash is asked to email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk or phone 101, quoting Operation Kinglet.”
