Motorcyclist killed after A29 crash near Bury village

A motorcyclist has died after he collided with a car on Sunday.

The crash happened on the A29 at the bottom of Bury Hill, near Amberley, at about 4.30pm.

The male rider died at the scene.

The car driver was taken to St Richard's Hospital in Chichester and released later that day.

Road policing officers closed the road in both directions for more than five hours while they pieced together what happened, with diversions in place near Watersfield and the Whiteways Lodge roundabout.

The crash happened near the Squire and Horse pub in Bury village, about half a mile south of where a similar fatality occurred on March 30 this year.

Then, Oliver Bird, 37, of Shoreham lost his life in a collision.

A member of staff at the pub said the stretch was known for accidents.

She said: “You only need to google Bury Hill to know how many accidents we get here.”

A retained fire crew from Petworth was called to make the road safe.

Investigators were not in a position to reveal details of the motorcyclist to The Argus as his next of kin were yet to be informed.

A Sussex Police spokesman said of the motorcyclist: "He suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced life extinct at the scene."

He was unable to say if there had been any arrests as a result of the accident.

We don't know the circumstances of this horrific incident, but the fact remains that more car drivers fail to see motorcycles than vice versa.

Not suggesting this is the case here and sincere condolences to the family - my observation being a local is that far too many motorcyclists die on Bury Hill, why, excess speed and crazy overtaking, and before you start with your blah blah blah you need to live here to observe what actually happens. If a motorist in a car is at fault not only do they hard to deal with the law but consequences of their actions, if not their fault, they have to deal still with the consequences - motorcyclists Bury Hill isn't a raceway. No one person deserves to lose a life here

There is no evidence! The fact is that hellohonkytonks, notslimjim and Valentinian are all the same person who been coming on here trolling for years now. How very sad that he sees the death of someone as an opportunity to troll.

AmboGuy hates the fact that more than one person on here is able to stand up to him.

You made some good points but the earlier report doesn't mention that the car was pulling out of a pub carpark. it says that the collision was 'head-on', indicating that both vehicles were on the road at the time of the impact.

You've gone very quiet since we were told that the driver has been arrested.
