Police closed a section of road in response to the collision in Ersham Road, Hailsham, near the junction with Saltmarsh Lane.

One of the people involved in the crash, described by police as a “young man” was taken to hospital by land following the incident despite the air ambulance being called for support.

A Sussex Police spokeswoman said: “We attended a road traffic collision and a young man was taken to hospital by land.


“The road is still closed.”
