Information sent on behalf of Sussex Police


Police are appealing for witnesses after a yellow Kia Picanto car, being driven east by a 71-year-old man from Pevensey, left the road and crashed into a field on the A259 Barnhorn Road, Bexhill-on-Sea.

The driver is thought to have suffered a medical episode at the wheel. He was taken by ambulance to the Conquest Hospital, St Leonards-on-Sea, where he is in a critical condition.

The crash happened at 5.20pm on Tuesday (20 March) near Barnhorn Oast Farm, 280 metres west of the road's junction with Coneyburrow Lane. No other vehicle was involved.

Officers investigating the incident would like to hear from anyone who saw what happened or who saw the Kia being driven shortly before the crash, and who has not yet come forward.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police by phoning 101, quoting Operation Samson.
