Police are appealing for witnesses after a motorcyclist was seriously hurt on a major road.

The accident happened on the eastbound carriagway of the A27 at Falmer at about 12.45pm yesterday.

A 125cc motorcycle had been travelling between slow-moving lines of traffic  when it was in collision with three vehicles.

The motorcyclist, a 21-year-old Portslade man, suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries.

The A27 was temporarily closed in both directions to allow the Kent, Surrey and Sussex air ambulance to land at the scene.

The casualty was eventually taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton by road.

Witnesses are asked to call Sussex Police on 101 or email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk, quoting serial 730 of 18/5.

A lesson for car drivers then, to watch for motorbikes filtering when traffic is queueing. Not too difficult to remember your highway code, mirror, signal, manoeuvring, or apparently it is.

Considering he hit 3 vehicles, I find it hard to believe it was the fault of those 3 drivers not following the highway code.

It only takes one idiot driver who doesn't follow the correct way of driving to hit a motorbike and then he may well have been propelled into the other two cars as traffic was queueing.

There are far more idiots on the road than you think.
