Motorcyclist dies in a crash this morning in Hassocks

Police are appealing for witnesses after a motorcyclist was tragically killed in a crash in Hassocks this morning (13 April).

A blue Suzuki motorcycle was travelling northbound on the A273 Brighton Road about 8.42am when it was in collision with a dark blue Vauxhall Zafira.

The incident occurred at the junction with Pound Gate.

The motorcyclist – a 62-year-old man – was sadly pronounced dead at the scene; the sole occupant of the Vauxhall – a 31-year-old local man – was uninjured.

A section of the road will remain closed for some time while investigations and recovery work are carried out.

In the meantime, police are urging anyone who saw what happened – or anyone who captured the movements of either vehicle on dash cam shortly before the collision – to email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk quoting Operation Convent.
