– Sergeant Paul Skinner, Sussex Police
This is a desperately tragic incident that has left a toddler fighting for her life. A full investigation is now under way and I would ask that anyone who witnessed the incident or who may have seen either of the cars in the area in the time leading up to the crash, to please call Sussex Police.
The road was closed for just over five hours while rescue and recovery work took place and while I appreciate that this did cause traffic problems in the area, I am sure people will appreciate the seriousness of this incident and I thank them for their patience and understanding.
An investigation is under way into a fatal road crash involving six members of the same family from Pimlico.
Sussex Police say a 56-year-old woman died when a VW Golf and a Honda Accord collided on the A24 near Warnham in West Sussex at about 11:30 on Sunday.
An 18-month-old girl was critically injured and two toddlers and two adults in the Honda were seriously hurt.
Police investigating a fatal collision in Wandsworth are appealing for witnesses.
A motorcyclist died following the accident on St John's Hill last Saturday night.
He has been named as 21-year-old Nickolas Amor.
Detective Sergeant Jeff Edwards, who is leading the investigation, said:
