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.
