A CRASH left a man with serious injuries after he was hit by a car outside the Conquest Hospital.

The 64-year-old was walking in the roadway leading to the hospital entrance off The Ridge on Tuesday morning at around 9.40am.

He sustained arm and leg fractures, as well as cuts and bruises.

The car then hit and damaged a small unoccupied storage hut by the side of the roadway, before coming to rest.

The 95-year-old motorist, who was driving the Mercedes C200 saloon car, and a 93-year-old passenger, were shocked but unhurt.

Simon Purkiss, spokesman for the Conquest, said both were checked out at the hospital on Tuesday and later discharged.

He said the injured man’s condition remained ‘stable’.

PC Richard Trundle, who is investigating, said: “Anyone who saw what happened is asked to contact Sussex Police on 0845 60 70 999.”
