Titnore Lane, in Goring-by-Sea, was closed earlier between its junction with the A27 and Titnore Way, after two cars left the carriageway and crashed into roadside ditches, police confirmed.

Emergency services were called just before 1pm.

The first collision involved a man driving a silver Vauxhall Corsa.

The second involved a woman in a black Honda Civic who was mechanically trapped when her car overturned.

The woman was extracted via the boot of her car but no one was thought to have been seriously hurt, a spokesman from Sussex Police said.

Richard Airey, from South East Coast Ambulance Service (SECAmb), said neither of the drivers required hospital treatment.

A spokeswoman from West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service (WSFRS) confirmed one vehicle was on its side and no-one was trapped.

The crashes follow a similar incident yesterday (December 8) in which a black Vauxhall Corsa overturned, necessitating closure of Titnore Lane between 1.20pm until 2.20pm while the scene was cleared.

No serious injuries were reported from the crash either.
