ROAD re-opens after two car crash in Shripney.

The A29 at Shripney Road, Shripney, was closed this morning (Friday, August 23) after two cars collided at the junction with Barn Lane at 8.50am and one of them, a Honda Civic, left the road and went into a ditch.

The 48-year-old Bognor woman driving that car was freed by firefighters and taken to St Richards Hospital in Chichester with a broken arm and cuts.

She is expected to be discharged later today.

The 35-year-old Bognor man driving the other car, a BMW 740, was unhurt.

Drivers were advised to avoid the area but the road was re-opened shortly after midday.

PC Jim King of the Sussex Road Policing Unit at Arundel said; “Anyone who saw what happened is asked to call us on 101 quoting Operation Ranger. You can also email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk.

“We appreciate the patience and understanding of drivers who will have had their journeys disrupted, while the casualty was rescued, the vehicles were removed, we examined the scene, and the road was made safe by the highways department.”
