Police are now appealing for witnesses after two BMW cars were in collision on the A27 Lewes Road, Polegate, on Saturday

The 26-year-old from London was pulled from his burning BMW 520 after a crash on Lewes Road, Polegate.

He was flown by air ambulance to St George's Hospital, Tooting, with life threatening injuries and is in a critical condition.

Emergency services were called at 7.47am near to the junction of Gainsborough Lane where the black BMW  travelling east collided with a black BMW 320 travelling west.

The impact caused the BMW 520 to burst into flames and the driver was pulled from the car.

The driver of the BMW 320, a 45-year-old man from Eastbourne, suffered minor injuries and his passenger, a man aged 39 also from Eastbourne, suffered a serious back injury.

Both were taken to Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton. The driver was released from hospital but his passenger remains there in a stable condition.

The road was closed for vehicle recovery and forensic collision investigation to take place and re-opened at 1.15pm.

Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to call police on 101 or email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk quoting Operation Foundation.
