The two-car crash saw lengthy delays on the A283 between Petworth and Northchapel after the collision at 2pm.

“A silver Skoda Fabia travelling south was in collision with a white Nissan Pulsar travelling north near School House Farm,” said a police spokesman.

“The driver of the Skoda, a 34-year-old Pulborough woman, sustained serious pelvic injuries and cuts.

“A two-year-old girl, a passenger in the Nissan, which was being driven by her father, a 26-year-old man from Bognor Regis, suffered a serious leg injury.

“Both casualties were taken by ambulance to St George’s Hospital, Tooting Bec, London, where they have been detained for treatment. Both are in a stable condition.”

The child’s father also went to the same hospital with what police described as ‘whiplash-style’ injuries but was not kept in hospital.

The road was closed between Streels Lane, Ebernoe, and the Lurgashall junction, until 6.44pm while the incident was dealt with and the two cars were recovered.

Anyone who saw what happened was asked to email [email protected] or call 101, quoting serial 782 of August 13.
