POLICE EXTEND REQUEST FOR WITNESSES TO NEWHAVEN-SEAFORD ROAD CRASH
May 31 2014.
Police are keen to trace the drivers of three vehicles that were yards away from a car and a bus that crashed on the A259 on Tuesday afternoon.
A white Toyota Yaris and a Brighton and Hove bus were both travelling towards Newhaven when they collided at 2.50pm on Tuesday.
The driver of the bus, a 67-year-old from Seaford, and six passengers were all treated for minor injuries.
Two 42-year-old men from Newhaven, who were passengers in the Toyota, were taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital after suffering broken necks in the collision. The other Toyota passenger, a 17-year-old from Newhaven, received a minor injury. The driver, an 18-year-old from Newhaven, was not injured.
Officers are keen to speak to the driver of a silver Vauxhall Corsa that was travelling eastbound towards Seaford behind another Brighton and Hove bus, the driver of a blue Vauxhall Insignia estate that was in front of the white Toyota Yaris and the driver of a dark Mercedes convertible that was behind the double decker bus when the crash happened.
PC Richard Hobbs said: "The drivers must have seen the crash happen and I am keen to speak to them to see what they know.
"It was a busy time of day and I would also like to speak to anyone else who was in the area and who saw what happened."
