It was reported that two young adults, believed to be around 18 years old and wearing dark hooded tops with their hoods up, fled from the vehicle, said police.

The spokesman said officers, assisted by a dog unit, were unable to find the suspects during a search of the area.

"If anyone witnessed the collision or saw the two men decamp from the vehicle please report online (https://www.sussex.police.uk/contact/af/contact-us/) or call 101 quoting 1217 of 05/02," said police.
