Sussex Police can now confirm that a pedestrian involved in a collision in Flimwell has sadly died.
The incident occurred in the area of the A21 London Road and the A268 Hawkhurst Road, sometime between 5.30pm and 5.50pm on Thursday 16 November.
The victim – a 75-year-old local man – was tragically pronounced dead at the scene. His next of kin have now been traced and informed.
The driver of the HGV involved – a 57-year-old man from Rye – has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and released under investigation as enquiries continue.
A section of the road was closed overnight to allow for forensics investigations, and the public are thanked for their patience and understanding.
Police continue to urge anyone who saw what happened, or anyone with dash cam footage who travelled along that stretch of road around the time of the collision, to come forward.
