Sussex police are now appealing for witnesses following a fatal collision on the A27.
Yesterday at around 4.15 pm, emergency services were called to the scene of a one vehicle collision, near Chichester.
The accident occurred after a lorry travelling west on the A27, collided with the central reservation and landed on the eastbound carriageway.
The lorry driver who died at the scene has been identified as a 60-year-old man from Waterlooville.
Police have confirmed that no other vehicles were involved, and his next of kin have been informed.
Inspector Stewart Goodwin said:
“We are appealing to anyone who was travelling on the A27 near Chichester at around that time and saw what happened.”
The fatal collision caused large tailbacks on the A27, during the busy evening rush hour and as a result, the A27 was closed for around 10 hours.
Drivers who faced long delays were diverted via the A259.
