The arrest comes after a thirty-five year old man handed himself in to police on Wednesday afternoon. He was later arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, drink driving, failing to stop for police and failing to report an incident. He still remains in custody at this time.
Police have revealed the victim who was killed in the collision was a 78 year old local man, who died at the junction of Old Steine and St James’s Street.
The collision happened just a couple of days before it was announced that Sussex Police are cracking down on drink and drug drivers.
