A 92-year-old pedestrian has died after being knocked down by a car.

The victim was hit by a Landrover Discovery as he tried to cross the A272 The Green in Newick at 9.10pm on Wednesday.

The car was travelling east when it struck the Newick man who was heading north across the road.

The victim was taken to Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton with life-threatening injuries but died later.

The car driver, a 60-year-old woman from Uckfield, was uninjured.

The road was closed for four hours while emergency services were at the scene.

Sergeant David Morgan said: "I'm keen to speak to anyone who saw or heard the collision or who saw either the pedestrian or the vehicle being driven in the minutes beforehand.

"Please contact us if you know anything at all about what happened."

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting Operation Haversham or email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk.
