A woman has been arrested on suspicion of drink-driving after being involved in a car crash on a Littlehampton road that was the site of a fatal collision days before.

Police were called to Lyminster Road in Wick, Littlehampton, at just after 6.50pm on Easter Monday (March 27) where two cars had collided near the Old Mead Road junction.

They were a silver Peugeot 206, driven by a 26-year-old woman from Littlehampton, and a red Nissan Qashqai, driven by a 61-year-old man from Bognor Regis.

The Nissan driver and his front seat passenger, a 61-year-old woman, also from Bognor Regis, were both unhurt.

The Peugeot driver sustained a cut right hand but did not require hospital treatment.

After failing a roadside breath test she was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving and has been bailed to appear before Worthing magistrates on Tuesday, 12 April at 2pm.

This crash comes days after 64-year-old Michael Smith from Arundel died after being hit by a car, also on Lyminster Road.
