Fire crews free driver from her car after she was involved in a collision at the junction at Crowborough Cross yesterday (Sunday 25th January).
Crowborough firefighters released the woman driver who was trapped in her Micra. She was cared for at the scene, before being taken to Pembury Hospital by paramedics for treatment to a head injury and suspected whiplash.
Many people ran out of the new Wetherspoon’s pub, where they were holding a pre-opening training night, to see if they could help.
Nasty looking road accident at Crowborough Cross junction. Emergency crews attending.

There was a similar collision at the Cross in December. The driver of the Vauxhall Corsa has been required to undertake a Driver Improvement Scheme. The traffic lights were re-phased recently to give longer on red. Councillors and local people have expressed concern some driver are jumping the red lights. The junction is to be reviewed by the Road Safety Team from East Sussex County Council.
