FIVE car crashes closed the A27 between Chichester and Emsworth last night (December 25).
Police and firefighters were called to the A27 to the crashes between 8pm and 9pm on Christmas Day. A West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said firefighters had to cut people out of two of the vehicles.
Sussex West Road Policing Unit said: “Collisions started due to freak weather and sudden a ‘wall of hail’ that froze the road.”
Ambulances were called to take injured parties to hospital.
