Police are appealing for witnesses to a collision involving a pedal cyclist between Hassocks and Burgess Hill.
It is believed that the pedal cyclist, a 66 year old local man, was cycling towards Burgess Hill on the cycle path just north of the Friars Oak Public House, the A273 London Road, at around 5.17pm on Sunday (December 8) when he has collided with a fence at the entrance to a property. He suffered serious head and chest injuries, and was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital where he remains in a critical condition.
The road was closed for around two hours to allow investigation work to take place.
Sergeant Rob Baldwin said: “We would like to thank motorists for their patience while the road was closed. Anybody with information is asked to contact police on 101 or email firstname.lastname@example.org quoting Operation Pensford.”
