5:28pm Sunday 5th September 2010

A woman is in a critical condition after her car was hit by a runaway trailer.

She was driving a Saab convertible along the A267 near Wellshurst Golf Club, Hellingly, just after 12.30pm when the trailer, being pulled by a Land Rover in the opposite carriageway, broke free.

The motorist suffered potentially life threatening injuries and was airlifted to the Royal London Hospital by the Surrey Air Ambulance.

Her passenger, a woman in her 60s, was taken to Eastbourne District General Hospital with serious injuries.

The driver of the Land Rover, a 38-year-old man from Herstmonceux, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of careless or dangerous driving.

Police are appealing for witnesses.
