The scene of the crash

A 25-YEAR-OLD man was airlifted to hospital after the Porsche Carerra he was in careered off the road, rolling several times before coming to rest in a field.

A 48-year-old driver from Westham is thought to have lost control of his sports car on a right-hand bend in Eastbourne Road just outside Westham on Saturday (April 24) at 5.40pm.

He is believed to have hit a curb on his way to Langney, ploughing through the road-side hedge, overturning and landing in a field.

The roof of the sports car is reported to have been cut away so the passenger, from Seaford, and the motorist could be prised from the wreckage by emergency services.

Daniel Jessup, 28, of Seaside Road, Eastbourne said, “He has gone through a bush, it looks like he has hit the gate and the hay barrels.

“There were emergency services everywhere.”

The 25-year-old passenger was taken to Royal London Hospital by Sussex Air Ambulance where he was treated for a fractured pelvis and internal bleeding.

A police spokesperson said he had been badly hurt, but the injuries were not life-threatening. The driver was treated for minor cuts to his face. Anthony Bates, of Honeycrag Close, Polegate who arrived on the scene a little later, said, “The Porsche was in a pretty bad way.

“The doors were hanging off and I presume one of the emergency services had removed the roof.”

Anyone with any information should call Sussex Police on 0845 6070999.
