This is what was left of a BMW car after it was involved in a crash with a lorry on the A23 at Pyecombe this morning.

Incredibly, police said the driver escaped with just a hand injury.

The accident happened soon after 9am when a lorry carrying a load of rocks toppled onto the BMW and shed its load across the carriageway.

The southbound lane of the A23 was shut for three hours.

The lorry driver was unhurt.
