Investigating officer PC Tom Van Der Wee, of the Sussex Roads Policing Unit, said: “We’re urging anyone who witnessed the collision or the events leading up to it, or anyone with dash cam – specifically involving the black BMW and a silver Honda Civic being driven in the area – to contact us.

“I’d also like to thank the public for their patience and understanding as emergency services worked at the scene.”
