Police Investigating Fatal Collision On A27 Near Lewes

A man has died in a single-vehicle collision on the A27.

A grey BMW 320i was travelling eastbound between Falmer and Lewes when the incident occurred just before 3am on Tuesday, January 9.

The driver, a 24-year-old man from Seaford, was tragically pronounced deceased.

Emergency services responded to the scene and the road was closed in both directions for several hours to allow for recovery and forensics investigations, but has since fully reopened.

Police have thanked the public for their patience and understanding.

Two male passengers in the vehicle, aged 24 and 19, and both from Seaford, were taken to hospital with serious and minor injuries respectively.

The cause of the collision is under investigation and anyone with any information is urged to email [email protected] quoting Op Romsley.

Officers are particularly keen to hear from anyone who may have seen the vehicle in the area around that time, or anyone who captured any relevant mobile, dash cam or CCTV footage.
