TWO pensioners were taken to hospital after the car they were travelling in was involved in a crash in Worthing this afternoon (Saturday, June 14).

Emergency services were called to a three-car crash in Poulters Lane at about 1.30pm this afternoon.

Two fire crews from Worthing as well as the fire service’s heavy rescue tender attended the incident – which closed the road in both directions for more than an hour.

Firefighters were forced to rip off one door from a silver Ford Mondeo to allow paramedics to treat a person for suspected back injuries.

Worthing crew commander Paul Gilbert said: “The road was closed when we turned up.

“When we arrived, the main car that was heavily involved in the crash was a good 50 metres away from all the other cars.

“It looked like it lost control and may have hit a tree.”

Two people, believed to be in their 70s, were taken to Worthing Hospital with suspected back injuries.

The road was re-opened at about 2.45pm.

The incident has been left with police to deal with.
