A 25-year-old driver has died in a crash on the A27.

The Bognor man was killed after his blue BMW crashed into “roadside furniture and trees” just before the Shell petrol station on the eastbound carriageway of the road near Emsworth at 8pm on Monday.

He was taken to St Richard’s Hospital, Chichester, where he was pronounced dead.

Inspector Steve Wakeford from Hampshire Constabulary, said: “Yesterday was extremely busy for all roads policing officers throughout the entire day with drivers affected for long periods of time.

“On the A27, we were called to assist with a number of road traffic incidents between 8pm and 9pm with this incident being the most serious.

“Sadly a driver died as a result and we are now investigating the circumstances leading up to it.

“It’s too early yet to say what caused the collision; the investigation team are looking at all aspects including the inclement weather prior to and around the time of the incidents.

“We would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision or has information that can help with our enquiries.”
