A herd of around 30 cows escaped a field and strayed into a busy carriageway.
They escaped into the A280 road in Angmering at around 22.30 last night.
A car ploughed into the herd, killing two of the animals.
One person was trapped in the vehicle before being released by emergency services before they, and another passenger, were taken to hospital.
