Three-vehicle smash up at Worthing

Nine people were injured in a three-vehicle smash up on Worthing main road, Christ Church around 7:40 a.m. today.

Three of the victims were transported to hospital by ambulance. However, none of the injuries was said to be life-threatening.

The accident, involving a truck, a route taxi and an SUV, brought traffic to a crawl as a section of the busy stretch was temporarily closed.

It re-opened two hours later after the wreckage was removed from the scene.

    not surprised to see a ZR involved – they do not wait their turn at this intersection when the lights are flashing.

    Lucky that truck wasn’t carrying a payload. I wouldn’t mind if only the ZR and minibus drivers get hurt or killed in these accidents.

    Are you serious with that comment?

    You really won’t mind if people were killed?

    michael parker, only this morning on the call-in program, some one wanted to know why are the traffic lights are not on regular operation? the moderator asked if its a functional problem or deliberate? that`s the million dollar question, they probably trying to save a dollar.

    I would guess that if the computer unit which regulates each junction went bum, and certain folks had neither spare parts or the F/X to up gently bring these in, that the units would default to “flashing” mode. This afternoon, on Starcom’s R.B.P.F. traffic segment, the officer mentioned that certain lights were indeed in flashing mode and to be “careful” but most significantly, he did NOT say if this was deliberate, or the result of malfunctioning equipment.
