Police have appealed for witnesses after a 77-year-old driver from Horley was taken to hospital with serious head injuries from a crash.

Emergency services were called to the scene of the van and car crash on the A2011 near Ramada Plaza hotel, Three Bridges, at around 9.20pm yesterday (Wednesday October 7).

A police spokesman said the driver of a black Chrysler Grand Voyager was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital after it was in collision with a white Ford Transit.

Crawley firefighters used hydraulic equipment to free the man from the car.

A spokesman for South East Coast Ambulance Service said paramedics and a doctor stabilised him for more than an hour at the scene before he was driven to the Brighton hospital for further treatment.

Witnesses are asked to email collisions.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call 101 quoting Operation Cubit.
