Abdul Deghayes, who was jailed in 2017 for drug dealing, died at the Royal Sussex County Hospital following the crash at 21:30 GMT near St Joseph's church, Elm Grove.Sussex Police is appealing for witnesses to come forward. Ch Insp Andy Bennett said: "We are trying to establish the exact circumstances of what has led to this young man's tragic death."We are aware that the car was in collision with other vehicles shortly before he was found to have suffered these injuries, which we are satisfied were caused maliciously and not as a result of the collision."The scene is close to the junction with Lewes Road, near to The Level park, and at that time of the evening would have been very busy.An area of Elm Grove remained cordoned off on Sunday morning, but police were expecting the road to reopen fully later.
