TWO people have been seriously injured after a car being pursued by police crashed on the A24 Horsham bypass.

Police said the vehicle was connected to a burglary at a home in Goring earlier in the afternoon.

Officers are still looking for the driver who fled from the vehicle following the crash.

At about 2pm a car - believed to be connected to the burglary - was spotted on the A24 before stopping at the Buck Barn services.

It left the services in convoy with another vehicle.

Both failed to stop and were pursued by police along the A24.

One vehicle crashed into a hedge nearby and the driver ran off but was arrested nearby.

The other car crashed with another vehicle on the A24 between the Broadbridge Heath and the Robin Hood roundabout seriously injuring two members of the public.

The driver fled from the car and is still being traced.

Firefighters, paramedics and the Air Ambulance also attended and the A24 is closed northbound between the Buck Barn crossroads and the Robin Hood roundabout at the B2237.

There are huge traffic queues.

Anyone with information is urged to call police on 999 in an emergency, online or 101 quoting serial 684 of 10/11.
