Police said a dark grey Audi TT and a black Kia Picanto collided on the A23 at Handcross on Saturday morning (January 20).

A 36-year-old man from South Croydon sustained a serious hand injury. Police said it required surgery and he was rushed to St George’s Hospital in London.

Officers said they want to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or who may have seen the Audi in the Brighton area or on the A23, in particular the manner in which it was being driven.
