A Sussex Police spokeswoman told the newspaper: “Police responded to reports of a single-vehicle collision on the B2135 near Partridge Green around 6.20am on Tuesday (September 28).

“A woman, 43, was arrested on suspicion of driving while above the legal limit for alcohol and drugs, and has been taken to hospital to be checked over.

“The road was blocked temporarily while recovery of the vehicle was arranged.”

A South East Ambulance Service spokesman said: “I can confirm we were called at approximately 6.30am to reports of an RTC on the B2135 at Partridge Green. 

“One ambulance crew attended the scene and one person was assessed and treated before being taken to hospital.”

HuffPost UK has contacted Katie Price’s representatives for comment.

Katie’s family have issued a joint statement on the star’s Instagram account, saying they are “concerned and worried about her deeply”. 

They said they had been concerned “for some time” about her “wellbeing and overall mental health” and want it to be acknowledged that she “is unwell”.

“Today our worst fears nearly came true. As a family, we have been and will continue to help Kate get the help she needs,” they said. 

The incident occurred the day after Katie appeared on Good Morning Britain, claiming she was still banned from driving due to a previous incident.

Speaking to presenters Alastair Campbell and Susanna Reid, the former glamour model and reality star said: “Harvey’s in Cheltenham now, he keeps ringing me saying, ‘Mummy I miss you, I need your kisses and cuddles’, so it is quite hard.

“Because obviously I don’t get my licence back until December, so I can’t just whizz in the car down there and it’s not close.”
