FIVE car crashes closed the A27 between Chichester and Emsworth last night.
Police and firefighters were called to the A27 to the crashes between 8pm and 9pm on Christmas Day. A West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said firefighters had to cut people out of two of the vehicles.
Sussex West Road Policing Unit said: “Collisions started due to freak weather and sudden a ‘wall of hail’ that froze the road.”
Ambulances were called to take casualties to hospital
