POLICE are appealing for witnesses following a fatal head-on collision.

A 67-year-old man from Hunston, near Chichester, who was driving a Reliant Robin, died at the scene on the A29, near Bognor, on Tuesday.

The collision happened at 12.55pm just north of the Robin Hood public house, close to Lidsey Caravan Park, on Lidsey Road.

Two cars were involved, a red Nissan Primera and the Reliant Robin, which collided head on.

The driver of the Robin Reliant is believed to have suffered a heart attack but to have died of multiple injuries.

The driver of the Nissan, a 65-year-old man from Chichester, was taken to St Richard’s Hospital in Chichester, with serious injuries.

Sergeant Tony Crisp said: ‘The 67-year-old man died of multiple injuries, not a heart attack.

‘We’re appealing to anyone who was driving along the road at the time and saw what happened to please get in contact.

‘Members of public are thanked for their patience while the road was closed.’
