A man has died and a child has been seriously injured in a collision with a car.

Emergency services were called to the Tushmore roundabout on Crawley Avenue, in Crawley, West Sussex, on Thursday.

Sussex Police said a red Fiat 500 hit the 49-year-old male pedestrian and a five-year-old child, who was riding a bike, at about 08:30 GMT.

The man died at the scene and the child is in hospital with a broken leg. They were not known to each other.

The driver, a 30-year-old local woman, was not hurt.

Sgt Richard Hornsey from Sussex Police said the force was supporting the man's family.

He said: "We are appealing to anyone who may have dashcam footage of the A23 Crawley Avenue between Ifield College and the collision site at the Tushmore Roundabout to please get in touch."
