Motorcyclist killed in collision on A27 at Wilmington

A motorcyclist died when his machine was in collision with two other vehicles on the A27 at Wilmington on Thursday evening (April 18).

The 63-year-old man from Eastbourne was travelling west towards Lewes at 6.36pm when the collision, also involving a black Vauxhall Astra and a white Nissan Primestar, occurred. Sadly, he died at the scene. His next-of-kin have been advised, but he has not yet been formally identified.

A 31-year-old man from Hounslow, who was driving the Astra, and the 37-year-old male driver of the Nissan, from Pevensey, were both uninjured.

The road was closed until shortly after 1am for recovery and collision investigation work to take place.

Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed the collision, who have not already made themselves known, to email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call 101 quoting Operation Greencourt.
