Appeal for witnesses following collision in Heathfield
Officers are appealing for witnesses following a collision between two cars in Marshlands Lane, Heathfield, on Monday afternoon (1 May). At around 4.30pm a blue Fiat Punto collided with a Peugeot and then drove off. The drivers of the two cars are known to each other. It is thought that a third vehicle, a silver Vauxhall Zafira, had to swerve to avoid the Fiat.
Anyone who was in the area at the time and may have seen what happened is asked to report online or call Sussex Police on 101 quoting serial 1008 of 01/05. Police are particularly interested in speaking to the driver of the Vauxhall.
A 17-year-old boy, local to the area, was arrested on suspicion of assault and has been released under investigation.
