Serious collision causes A23 to close and chaos on the roads around Crawley



The accident occurred at approximately 5:40am this morning (15th Aug).

The driver and one passenger were making their way along Crawley Avenue from the Gossops Green direction when they lost control of the car as they approached Ifield Roundabout.

This caused the vehicle to have its collision and end up on the other side of the roundabout on the grass verge.

Whilst the driver was uninjured the passenger did suffer significant injuries to their arm although not thought to be life threatening.

An ambulance attended and the injured passenger was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital.

The car ended up on the grass verge and footpath.

Due to the fact the collision started before Ifield Roundabout Police had to close off the A23 Crawley Avenue from the Gossops Drive junction all the way to Tushmore Roundabout in a clockwise direction so that they could conclude their investigation.

There was significant traffic chaos around Bewbush and Gossops Green as a result as drivers tried to wind their way through the smaller roads.

A 23-year-old woman from East Grinstead has been arrested on suspicion of drink and drug-driving, and remains in police custody at this stage.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, or who saw the Corsa being driven in the area beforehand, is asked to email quoting serial 194 of 15/08.

The roads were expected to be reopened once the damaged car was collected at approximately 9:30am.
