Two pedestrians who died at Ringmer last weekend and a couple who died after two cars crashed at Cross in Hand have been named by police.

The husband and wife who died at the scene of the collision on the A267 near Cross in Hand on Saturday were David and Linda Evans, from Pook Reed Lane, Heathfield. He was 55 and she was 48.

They were in their Ford Ranger travelling south just before 11.30pm when they were in collision with a northbound Mini Countryman travelling north at the junction with Meres Road, north of Cross in Hand.

The Mini driver, an 18-year-old man from Heathfield, and his passenger, an 18-year-old woman from Newick, both sustained serious injuries and were yesterday still receiving treatment at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton.

Police said their injuries were not assessed as life-threatening.

The two pedestrians who died at the scene of the accident at Ringmer were James Morden, 31, of Hilbert Road, Tunbridge Wells, and Matthew Lind, 31, of Broadway Court, Wimbledon.

A Nissan Pathfinder 4×4 driven by an Uckfield woman was heading north when it collided with several pedestrians in a group walking along Harveys Lane, off the B2192 outside Ringmer, just after 8pm on Saturday.

Anyone who saw what happened is asked to contact the police via, or by calling 101, quoting Operation Greenwich.
