A 64-YEAR-OLD woman has died after a three-car collision on the A27.

Officers were called shortly before 2.40pm on Friday, October 22 to reports of a three-car collision involving a BMW X3, a Hyundai i10 and a Ford S-Max.

The road between Beddingham and Polegate had been closed in both directions while officers respond to the incident.

Despite the efforts of paramedics, the driver of the Hyundai - a 64-year-old woman from Peacehaven - died at the scene.

A second driver was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton for treatment to minor injuries.

Pictures taken from the scene show the crash site with debris littering the road.

Officers investigating the collision would like to hear from anyone who saw what happened, or who may have captured any relevant dash cam footage.

A spokesman from Sussex Police said: "Anyone with information is asked to email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call 101 quoting Operation Charndon.

"The road was closed in both directions while emergency services responded to the incident, but has since reopened."
