Police appeal after collision

Police are appealing for witnesses after a car collided with another vehicle before leaving the scene.

The collision, which took place on Tuesday this week, left a woman with minor neck and back injuries.

At around 1.15pm a blue Suzuki Swift was struck by a silver car, which was following it south from the roundabout at The Hydneye. The impact pushed the Suzuki into a dark-coloured Volkswagen Polo. It was then seen to reverse before driving off north on Lottbridge Drove where it turned left into Mountfield Road.

The driver of the Suzuki Swift, a 43-year-old woman from Eastbourne, was taken to the Eastbourne DGH for treatment.

PC Stuart Kenway from Sussex Police’s Road Policing Unit said, “We are keen to trace the driver of the small silver car who did not stop at the scene of the collision.

“If you witnessed it, know of a similar car that has sustained damage in the last few days or have any information that could help police with our investigation, please call 101 quoting serial 795 of 23/10.”
