A driver arrested for his role in a fatal collision with a cyclist yesterday (August 1) has been released under investigation by Sussex Police.
Sussex Police said a 93-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and failing to stop, following a collision with a cyclist on the A259 in Littlehampton.
The cyclist, identified only as a 48-year-old man, sadly died in the incident, police said, which took place shortly before 6.30am.
The driver has been released under investigation while enquiries continue, said police.
A police spokesman said officers were keen to speak to anyone who saw what happened or who may have dash-cam footage of the incident.
They are asked to report details online, email [email protected] or phone 101, quoting Operation Glenview.
The coroner for West Sussex has been informed and a post mortem examination is due to be carried out next week, the spokesman added.
