Teenage girl fights for life after crash on the A259
UPDATE: A 14-year-old girl is fighting for her life after being hit by a car on a busy road.
The teenager was struck on the eastbound carriageway of the A259 Pevensey Bay Road in Eastbourne by a Vauxhall Corsa, at about 11.45am today, a Sussex Police spokeswoman said.
Police and the South East Coast Ambulance Service were called to the scene, near The Crumbles shopping centre, and the girl was airlifted to King's College Hospital in London, where she remains in a critical condition, the spokeswoman said.
Sergeant Dave Morgan, from East Sussex Road Policing Unit, said: "We are appealing to anyone who witnessed the collision to please call us on 101 quoting Operation Yarford.
"The road was closed eastbound for several hours whilst forensic investigators examined the scene and Highways cleared the road of debris.
"I would like to thank drivers for their patience and understanding."
The driver of the Corsa, a 19-year-old woman from St Leonards on Sea, East Sussex, was uninjured and has not been arrested, police said.
