Accident closes Camber Road


At 1:50pm on Sunday April 3, emergency services were called to New Lydd Road, Camber, near Rye, where a motorcycle and a van had been in a head-on collision.

The motorcyclist, a 33-year-old man from Dagenham, Essex, riding a blue Suzuki GSXR600, sustained serious injuries. A helicopter from the Kent & Sussex Air Ambulance Service landed in the field next to the road and carried the motorcyclist, who had severe head, thorax, abdomen and leg injuries, to St George’s Hospital, Tooting, London, for treatment. He is currently in a stable condition.

The van, a silver Volkswagen Transporter, was driven by a 52-year-old man from St Leonards-on-Sea, who was unhurt.

The road was closed for five hours while the scene was cleared and investigations carried out.

Inspector Adam Hays, of Sussex Police, said: “We believe the motorcyclist was part of a larger group of riders and we are keen to speak to any witnesses.”

Anyone who saw what happened or noticed either the car or motorcycle being driven shortly before the crash is asked to email or phone 101, quoting Operation Middleton.
