Driver arrested following three car collision on A24 Worthing man injured

 

The driver of a silver Ford Focus involved in a three car collision on the A24 at Buck Barn yesterday (Tuesday March 10th) has been arrested of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.  A 26-year-old man from Worthing suffered slight injuries.

Following treatment at Worthing Hospital for minor injuries the Ford Focus driver, from Southwater, was taken to Worthing custody centre where he was interviewed and later released on bail until April 25th while enquiries continue.

The 7.25 am collision, which also involved a Vauxhall Combo and a Renault Trafic van, closed the northbound carriageway of the A24 until 25 minutes after midnight due to the road surface having to be repaired.

The Vauxhall driver, a 53-year-old man from Sompting, suffered serious injuries and was flown to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton, by the Kent, Surrey and Sussex air ambulance. He is in a stable condition.

The Worthing man driving the Renault van was treated at Worthing Hospital.
