A second crash in East Sussex in less than four hours has resulted in two more tragic fatalities.
Just before 11.30pm on Saturday (9 September) a Mini Countryman travelling north and a Ford Ranger travelling south collided on the A267 at the junction with Meres Road, just north of Cross-In-Hand, near Heathfield.
The 55-year-old man driving the Ford and the 48-year-old woman who was his passenger, both from Heathfield, Ford died at the scene.
The Mini driver, an 18–year-old man from Heathfield, sustained serious injuries and was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton. His passenger, an 18-year-old woman from Newick, was treated at the same hospital for minor injuries.
Sergeant Huw Watts of the Surrey and Sussex Road Policing Unit said; “Anyone who saw what happened is asked to contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 101, quoting Operation Edenberry.
“If anyone has any dash cam footage or CCTV relating to this incident, we would be particularly interested to hear from them. We are seeking all witnesses to the collision and any incidents leading up to it, especially the driver of a minibus seen near the area after the collision occurred.”
