WATCH: Man left with potentially life-changing leg injuries after lorry crash

THIS was the scene in Brighton where a man was left with potentially life-changing leg injuries after being hit by a lorry. Emergency services were called to Hollingdean Road in Brighton at 8.26am to reports of a collision between a lorry and a pedestrian. A 20-year-old man was taken to hospital by the ambulance service with potentially life-changing leg injuries.

The road was closed in both directions but has since been reopened. Video taken from the scene showed officers manning a cordon as blue tape marked a section of the road. An articulated lorry was also inside the cordon, as officers worked to investigate the collision.

A spokesman from Sussex Police said: “Anybody who witnessed the incident or has relevant dash-cam footage can contact police online or by calling 101, quoting Operation Nettle.”
