A McLaren worker was left critically injured after the supercar he was driving crashed in West Sussex and left him impaled on a fence post.

The man, who has not been identified, left the A285 at Duncton north of Chichester, and rolled in a car reported to be a McLaren 650S.

Sussex Police said he was airlifted from the crash site to St George's Hospital in Tooting, south-west London, with critical injuries.

A spokesman for Woking-based McLaren said his family were with him in hospital, adding: ``Our thoughts are with our friend and colleague, and his family.''

A message on McLaren's Facebook page said: ``We are all thinking of our friend and colleague following a serious accident on Friday.

``Out of respect for his family we won't mention his name but we wish him a swift recovery and look forward to seeing him back at work soon.''

Sergeant Stewart Goodwin, of Sussex Police, appealed to any witnesses to call the force on 101, quoting Operation Adstone.
