A285 collision results in two dead and four injured

A serious car accident on the A285, at the junction of Selhurstpark Road and Upwaltham, has resulted in the death of two individuals as well as personal injury to four others.

Reports state that just before 11pm last Saturday evening, two cars collided into each other between Petworth and Goodwood. The reasons behind the road traffic accident are not yet clear and are being investigated.

Subsequent to impact, one of the vehicles caught alight, but the driver and passenger thankfully managed to exit the car shortly after this occurred. They were taken to Saint Richard's Hospital in Chichester for medical treatment.

Two elderly female passengers in the other vehicle involved were sadly pronounced dead at the scene. The driver and third passenger in this car were found severely injured and were taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton. They remain in a serious condition.

Police are asking for any witnesses to the car accident to come forward, so that they might determine the cause of the collision.

Any individuals injured in the crash, as well as any family members of the deceased passengers, might choose to claim compensation for their pain and suffering from the liable party – if a person, organisation, or company is found responsible.

Social Media And The Law. Beware!

Most of us now use or have access to 'social media' of some sort. Twitter and Facebook are very much part of our everyday lives enabling any of us to communicate and express our views to both close friends and a wider audience.


Negotiating an Agreement – Pitfalls to avoid

We all form contracts every day. Not all contracts need to be in writing (though some, such as some land contracts, do). When you buy a loaf of bread from your local shop, you offer to purchase it, the offer is accepted by the baker, you pay them your money and acquire your loaf. Congratulations, you have successfully entered into and performed a contract.


Optimism over Chichester weather response

It's a fine balance for councils and businesses: when extreme weather strikes it is important that things carry on as normally as possible and that the typical routines and rhythms of life do not give way unnecessarily to hysteria and disruption.

Hundreds of people every year suffer road traffic-related injuries due to motorists driving intoxicated. And, despite campaigns from road safety organisations and emergency services around winter time, the chances are that many more will be found by police to be drunk driving over this Christmas period.
