Seaford news.

Police want to trace the drivers of three vehicles that were yards away from a car and a bus that crashed on the A259 in Seaford.

A white Toyota Yaris and a Brighton and Hove bus were both in Newhaven Road travelling towards Newhaven when they collided at 2.50pm on Tuesday (May 27).

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 Royal Sussex County Hospital after breaking their 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.”

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting serial 803 of 27/5 or email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk.
