Inspector Darren Taylor of the Mid Sussex Neighborhood Police Unit added that there had been another incident at College Road in Hayward’s Heath, where a car “ended up in a field”.

He said: “The driver lost control in the turn due to bad weather conditions.

Fortunately, there were no injuries and the vehicle was recovered from the field.
