Pedestrian dies and child in serious condition after collision at Tushmore Roundabout

Police are appealing for witnesses.



Emergency services were called around 8.30am on Thursday (1 November) to a serious collision at the Tushmore roundabout on Crawley Avenue.

A red Fiat 500 car collided with a male pedestrian and a child on a bike who were using a pelican crossing.

A 49-year-old Crawley man, who was a pedestrian, sadly died at the scene. A 5-year-old boy riding a bike was also seriously injured and remains in hospital with a broken leg. They weren’t together.

The driver of the car, a 30-year-old local woman, was uninjured. 

Sergeant Richard Hornsey said:

“We are supporting the man’s family as we begin our investigation.

Sergeant Dan Eaton said:

“This was a busy time of the morning and we are appealing to anyone who saw what happened to please get in touch. Anyone with information is asked to please contact us.”
