UPDATE: A woman who was hit by a bus this morning is now said to be fighting for her life in hospital
She suffered serious head injuries after being hit on Lewes Road, leading to the road being closed in both directions.
Emergency services were called at 8.36 this morning to Lewes Road, Brighton. The collision happened between Coldean Lane and Ringmer Road.
It is understood the woman in her 20s was hit by a bus and is being treated for what appears to be serious head injuries.
The road was closed in both directions for some time, with the northbound carriageway opened at about 10.15am. The southbound carriageway was partly reopened at about 11am.
I feel physically sick actually in tears just seen a accident on Lewes road, ambulance men giving a girl CPR, I just hope she's okay👼— Loren Standing (@lorenstanding) January 28, 2014
Collision on Lewes Road, air ambulance & someone clearly very injured. Hope no one dies and people don't just focus on traffic disruption.— Duncan Moore (@DunKhan) January 28, 2014
Lewes Road has been closed while the accident is cleared and bus services are being diverted via Coldean Lane and Ditchling Road.
The 25 bus service is very limited, as its usual bendy buses can't travel along the diversionary route.
THERE IS A VERY LIMITED service on service 25. This is due to all Bendy Buses being withdrawn due to them being unsuitable for the diversion— B&H Buses (@BrightonHoveBus) January 28, 2014
