New information has been released about the collision, which happened in Meredith Road, just before Midnight.
Emergency services were alerted by a member of the public to the collision after a silver VW Golf was found on its roof.
The car is believed to have collided with four parked vehicles before coming to a stop and a Nissan, Honda, Volkswagen and Kia were all found with damage, a spokesperson from Sussex Police confirmed.
The 24-year-old woman and baby, who were passengers in the car, were treated by medics at the scene but were not injured, it has been confirmed.
A 31-year-old man of no fixed address was arrested nearby, after fleeing the scene, on suspicion of possession of cannabis and driving a vehicle whilst unfit through drugs.
He has been bailed until December 21 pending further enquiries.
