A 76-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, causing serious injury by dangerous driving and for failing to stop after a road accident.

He has been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

A section of the road was temporarily closed while investigations took place.

A witness told the Daily Mail: “I didn't see the accident happen I just came round the corner, and I saw the traffic and a lorry and car in front that had stopped.

“They had already got the child out the car and there were plenty of people scurrying about.”

An off-duty doctor also helped free one of the drivers whose car had crashed into a hedge.

At the time of the crash, a spokesman for Sussex Police said: "We'd like to thank the public for their patience and understanding while we carried out vital investigative work at the scene."

Police investigating the collision continue to appeal for any witnesses to come forward.

The crash involved a blue Ford Fiesta, a white Renault Master, a silver Toyota Estima and a grey Honda.

Police would particularly like to hear from anyone who may have captured any dash cam footage from the area around that time.

Anyone with information is asked to email or call 101 quoting Operation Utility.
