Police are seeking witnesses after a man sustained serious injuries in a collision on the A24.

The victim, a local man in his 70s, had broken down in his maroon Humber Snipe on the southbound slip road, just prior to the junction with The Hollow, about 7.35pm on Friday (5 October).

He then alighted his vehicle and proceeded to cross the carriageway on foot, when he was struck by a blue Volkswagen Golf in lane two.

He was taken to Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton with serious injuries, where he remains in a critical but stable condition. No other injuries were reported.

The road was closed until about 12.40am on Saturday (6 October) while emergency services attended the scene.

Anyone who saw what happened, or anyone with dash cam footage of the incident, is asked to report it online or phone 101, quoting Operation Glandore.
