Police say an elderly Eastbourne woman is ‘seriously ill’ in hospital after a collision in Seaford last night (Monday).

The 81-year-old woman was taken by ambulance to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton after she was involved in a collision with a car on the A259 Buckle by-pass at around 6.30pm.

Police are now seeking witnesses to the collision, which involved a white Citroen DS3 car driven by a 20-year-old man from Seaford. Police say the driver was uninjured.

The collision occurred near the by-pass’s junction with Beacon Road and led to the A259 being closed to traffic for around three hours while the incident was dealt with.

Anyone who saw what happened or who may have other information is asked email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk, quoting Operation Chatsworth.

They can also report details on-line at https://sussex.police.uk/contact-us/response-to-appeal/, or by phoning 101.
