Police are appealing for witnesses after a man who was in collision with a car in Newick on Wednesday (December 4) died of his injuries.

The 92-year-old pedestrian was in collision with a Landrover Discovery as he tried to cross the A272 The Green in Newick at 9.10pm.

The car was travelling east and the pedestrian was heading north across the road.

He was taken to Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton with life-threatening injuries and died later.

The car driver, a 60-year-old woman from Uckfield, was uninjured.

“Please contact us if you know anything at all about what happened.”
