A PEDESTRIAN has been injured in a hit and run crash.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the crash on the B2112 New Road shortly after 6am on Sunday, July 3.

Police said the incident happened between Ditchling and Clayton.

“We’re currently investigating a collision between a pedestrian and a vehicle which failed to stop at the scene,” a police spokesman said.

“Anyone who saw what happened or captured the incident on dash cam is urged to email collision.appeal@sussex.police.uk quoting Operation Kempston.

“Specifically, officers are keen to hear from anyone who sees a white van, possibly on a 2015 plate, which has damage to its headlight and is missing its onside wing mirror.”

A section of the road remains closed at this time, and motorists are urged to seek alternative routes.
