The crash occurred at about 6.15pm on the A272 between Petworth and Wisborough Green, some 60 metres east of the junction with Wakestone Lane.

A police spokesman said: “The driver was cut free from the vehicle by West Sussex fire and rescue service and taken to Guildford Hospital in Surrey for treatment. Her injuries included a badly fractured left leg.”
