The A272 has now reopened following a crash close to Rogate earlier today (Thursday, March 9).
But a police spokesman said a 59 year old woman from Waterlooville, Hampshire, remains in a critical condition following the three-vehicle crash at 10am which involved a Renault box van, a Vauxhall Adam and a Peugot 207.
The woman, who was driving the Vauxhall, suffered serious potentially life threatening injuries, said the police spokesman and was flown by air ambulance to Southampton General Hospital.
He said the van, driven by a 37-year-old man from Burgess Hill, rolled onto its side. He and the Peugeot driver, a 46-year-old man from Emsworth, Hampshire, were both injured and were taken by ambulance to local hospitals.
The A272 was closed for more than six hours while police investigators examined the scene.
Inspector Stewart Goodwin, of the Sussex and Surrey roads policing unit has asked anyone who saw what happened or noticed any of the vehicles involved being driven shortly before the collision to get in touch, quoting Operation Thor.
