A MOTORCYCLIST was taken to hospital after suffering ‘serious injuries’ in a collision on the A29 at Bury on Sunday afternoon.

The 57-year-old from Shoreham-by-Sea was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton after his red Yamaha motorcycle was in collision with a black Audi A3 near Charlie’s Farm Shop, police said.

The car driver, a 32-year-old man from Horsham, was unhurt.

The 29 at Bury Hill is a notorious accident black spot.

Two weeks ago motorcyclist William Ruewell, 20, from Billingshurst died following a collision at the bottom of Bury Hill and in March of this year Oliver Bird, 37, from Shoreham lost his life in a crash about half a mile south.

This latest accident happened at around 4.45pm on Sunday and the A29 was temporarily closed northbound while emergency services were at the scene.

Anyone who saw what happened and who has not yet spoken to police is asked to email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk or phone 101, quoting serial 1142, of 7/9.
