Updated 9:13pm Sunday 13th April 2014 in News
The A27 has reopened after a crash closed the eastbound carriageway for four hours this evening.
The road between Hangleton to Hove was closed after a serious accident involving two cars and two motorbikes at about 4.45pm.
Closures on the eastbound carriageway caused long queues of traffic and delays for up to 90 minutes.
The westbound carriageway was closed until 7.10pm. The eastbound carriageway reopened at 9pm.
A spokesman from Sussex Police said: "A motorcycle ridden by a man believed to be aged 45 was in collision with a silver Mercedes saloon on the eastbound A27 at Hangleton.
"The motorcyclist was taken by road ambulance to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton with injuries which were yet to be assessed but he was conscious and breathing at the scene.
"The eastbound A27 was closed for the scene to be made safe and examined."
