Was this not the crash I saw at around 3.30pm at Falmer where a van was crashed between the mobile traffic sign at the bridge over the Stanmer park road? Amazing how many people crash just because its raining, people need to pay more attention and drive more appropriate to the weather.

I drove past this on the opposite carriageway at 3:30 so not sure where you get the 7pm from? Also there was no lorry involved, it looked like van to me that ended up wedged with it's back wheels hanging over walkway/bridge barrier at the side of the road. Looked like it could have been a lot worse!

Poor reporting as usual!

It looked like it was lucky that the sign was there otherwise I would have thought the van would have gone straight over!
