Police are appealing for witnesses as a man who died on the A23 at Warninglid has been named.
Anghelus-Adi Pieptea, a 25-year-old man from Wakehurst Drive, Southgate, Crawley, was the front seat passenger when he died while travelling in a black Nissan Micra.
The collision occurred at around 1.40am on Saturday (16 December) some 600 metres north of the road’s junction with Broxmead Lane and witnesses are being sought to establish what happened.
A 22-year-old woman from Kenley, Surrey, in the rear of the car suffered serious facial injuries. She remains in a serious but stable condition in hospital.
Sergeant Alan Spicer said: “Our thoughts are with Anghelus-Adi’s friends and family at this time.
“Anyone who saw what happened or noticed the Nissan being driven shortly before the crash is asked to contact police online quoting Operation Cranbourne.”
