A teenage motorcyclist has been released from hospital after he was seriously injured following a collision on the A24 in Worthing on June 1.

A spokesman for Sussex Police said: “The motorcyclist has been released from hospital and is continuing his recovery at home.

“No arrests have yet been made. Enquiries are ongoing.”

The 19-year-old was riding a yellow Honda CBR 125 that was involved in a collision with a Mercedes Sprinter minibus at around 4pm.

He was airlifted to St George’s Hospital in London with multiple injuries after he was released from under the minibus, a police spokesperson said.

The crash happened at the junction of the A24 Findon Road and Allendale Avenue.

The road was closed for more than two hours while rescue and recovery work took place, along with evidence gathering for the investigation into the incident, Sussex Police said.

The driver of the minibus, a 61-year-old man from Arundel, suffered minor injuries.

Police have thanked members of the public for their patience while the road was closed.
