A WOMAN suffered serious head injuries in a crash with a car that failed to stop.

The 30-year-old pedestrian was hit by a black Hyundai Coupe in Hotham Way, Bognor, at about 10.50pm on Friday.

She remains in hospital with serious injuries to her head and legs.

Sussex Police say the driver of the vehicle failed to stop at the scene.

Four people were arrested shortly after the crash

A 42-year-old woman, a 42-year-old man and a 46-year-old man, all from the Bognor area were released without charge.

They are said to be helping police with their enquiries.

A 41-year-old man, also from Bognor, was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and failing to stop after a road traffic collision.

He has been released on conditional bail while enquiries continue.

The road remained closed for several hours while emergency services dealt with the incident and to allow a detailed examination of the scene to be carried out safely.

The force thanked the public for their patience and understanding during this time.

A Sussex Police spokesman said: "Officers investigating the collision are keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision, or the vehicle driving in the area beforehand.

"They would particularly like to speak to anyone who may have captured any relevant dash cam footage, and ask motorists with dash cams who were travelling in the area at that time to review their footage.

"Anyone with information is asked to email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call 101 quoting Operation Simmer."
