Three people were taken to hospital after a serious road accident this morning (Saturday).

Two cars, both believed to have been black BMWs, crashed on the A27 westbound at Polegate shortly before 8am.

East Sussex Fire and Rescue said crew from Eastbourne attended the scene to initial reports somebody was trapped in one of the vehicles, but they had been freed by the time they arrived.

The Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance took one person to hospital while two other people were taken by ambulance.

The Highways Agency said the road would remain closed for "some time" as engineers inspected surface damage

Is it true one of the cars involved was an unmarked Police car?

At midday the queue to cross the A259 at Exceat Bridge with people being diverted is almost back to Friston. It is unfortunate events such as this accident that East Sussex County Council should change their minds and support East Dean and Friston Parish Council in their quest for traffic lights (part time when congestion builds up) at Exceat Bridge. This would give all drivers a fair chance at the bridge which is single width with priority to eastbound traffic. Technology must be about to have sensors in the road to reduce long queues in either direction.

More to the point, that bridge should be replaced or widened to full double width. Enough taxation is collected from the road users to fund it.

Yes, let's encourage even more traffic on to a road going through an area of outstanding natural beauty

But with traffic lights, annoying d***heads in black BMWs would just see it as their prerogative to jump the tail end of lights and try to pretend that it was on amber, like they do everywhere else.

I don't mean to come across as racist, but as it was two black BMWs that crashed into each other, they might not have been able to see each other.
