Sussex Police now say four vehicles were involved in this morning’s (27 September) crash on the A27 at Polegate.
It happened at 10.44am on Lewes Road, close to the junction with Folkington Road, when a silver Mercedes-Benz SL500 travelling east was involved in a collision with three vehicles travelling west - including two Sussex Police Ford Transit personnel carriers and a red Fiat 500 car.
The Mercedes driver, a 65-year-old woman from Eastbourne, was treated at the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton, for bruising. A 28-year-old woman from Hailsham sustained a sprained wrist and was treated at Eastbourne District General Hospital and a one-year-old girl, a passenger in her car, suffered a cut lip.
A 43-year-old man driving the leading police vehicle was unhurt, but a woman colleague in the second Transit sustained bruising.
The A27 was closed until 12.25pm while the incident was dealt with and the scene cleared.
Anyone who saw what happened or who may have other relevant information is asked to report details online or by phoning 101, quoting serial 470 of 27/09.
