The 27-year-old, who has not been named by police, was in a van which crashed into a tree just before 1am at the junction of Offington Avenue and Offington Drive, in Salvington.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
“Four other men were in the van – two 27-year-olds from Worthing, a 31-year-old from Worthing and a 32-year-old from Goring-by-Sea,” said police this morning (June 15).
“All four were arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
“The 31-year-old has since been bailed until July 3 and the others until August 4 while investigations continue.
“All four survivors were treated at Worthing Hospital for cuts and bruising sustained in the crash.”
Anyone who saw what happened or who noticed the van, a red Vauxhall Movano, being driven shortly before the crash, was asked to come forward.
Police said they should email [email protected] or phone 101, quoting Operation Tolworth.
