A CAR has hit a child in Southwick Square, according to reports from the public.

A little girl is believed to have been rushed to hospital after being knocked down by a car at around 4.30pm this afternoon.

Reports suggest the girl ran into the road and the accident was not the driver’s fault,

Adur councillor Peter Metcalfe witnessed the aftermath of the accident.

“It’s not a nice thing to see,” he said.

“I just came round the corner and there were a number of police cars and an ambulance and lots of activity in the street.

“I made my own enquiries and I understand she’s not in too bad a condition.

“I certainly was alarmed and I ran down there because I wanted to find out what was happening.

“It brings it home how vigilant we have to be.

“It could have been a lot worse.”

More as we have it.
