Did you see a bus crash which left eight people injured and two hospitalised?

Police want to trace the drivers of three vehicles after a collision between a white Toyota Yaris and a Brighton and Hove bus in Newhaven Road, Seaford at 2.50pm on May 27.

The driver of the bus, a 67-year-old from Seaford, and six passengers were all treated for minor injuries.

Two 42-year-old men from Newhaven who were passengers in the Toyota were taken to Royal Sussex County Hospital after suffering broken necks in the collision.

The other Toyota passenger, a 17-year-old from Newhaven, received a minor injury. The driver, an 18-year-old from Newhaven, was not injured.

Officers are keen to speak to the driver of a silver Vauxhall Corsa that was travelling eastbound towards Seaford behind another Brighton and Hove bus, the driver of a blue Vauxhall Insignia estate that was in front of the white Toyota Yaris and the driver of a dark Mercedes convertible that was behind the double decker bus when the crash happened.

PC Richard Hobbs said: "The drivers must have seen the crash happen and I am keen to speak to them to see what they know.

"It was a busy time of day and I would also like to speak to anyone else who was in the area and who saw what happened."

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting serial 803 of 27/5 or email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk.

There was a 72 year old on the 7s until he got annoyed and jacked it in. Once you reach 45 you have a medical every 5 years, and over 65 you have to have a medical every year.

Why? Why not ask should an 18 year old be driving a car?? If the driving age was put up to 21, it would have the benefit of taking a lot of the student vehicles off the roads.
