Man arrested in connection with Three Bridges hit-and-run


A man has been arrested in connection with a hit-and-run which occurred in Haslett Avenue East, Three Bridges, about 6.10pm on Wednesday 27 May.

Three people were crossing the road from Three Bridges railway station when one of them – a 28-year-old local man – was struck by a car, believed to be a white Audi, which failed to stop at the scene.

He was taken to Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton where it was confirmed he sustained a fractured rib. He was later discharged.

On Thursday morning (28 May), a 23-year-old man from Crawley handed himself in to police, and was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and failing to stop after a road traffic collision. He has been interviewed and released under investigation, pending further enquiries.

Police are still urging anyone who witnessed the collision or saw a white Audi being driven in the area around that time – or anyone with dash cam, CCTV or mobile phone footage of the incident – to come forward.
