Eastbourne crash teenager hit by car 'critical'

A 14-year-old girl is in a critical condition in a London hospital after she was hit by a car in East Sussex.

Emergency teams were called to the A259 Pevensey Bay Road, Eastbourne, at about 11:45 BST, Sussex Police said.

The teenager was airlifted to King's College Hospital, London, for treatment.

The road was closed eastbound for several hours while forensic investigators examined the scene and the road was cleared of debris.

Sgt Dave Morgan appealed for any witnesses to contact the force.

The driver of the Vauxhall Corsa, a 19-year-old woman from St Leonards, was uninjured, he said.
