Hastings road shut after collision between car and boy


A main road was closed for two hours following a collision between a car and a boy yesterday (Thursday, June 25).

The incident happened in Queen’s Road at around 3.45pm.

A Sussex Police spokesman said: “A boy aged 11 began crossing the road in front of a stationary single-decker bus, halted at a bus stop close to Stonefield Place, and was in collision with a passing Citroen C1 car, smashing its windscreen.

“The boy suffered a head injury and was taken by ambulance to the Conquest Hospital, St Leonards.

“The road was closed and the scene sealed off until the extent of the boy’s injury could be determined. It was later found to be a slight injury only.

“Police would like to thank motorists for their patience and understanding while Queen’s Road was shut.”
