Thursday, December 16, 2021

We are appealing for witnesses after a collision in Freckleton left a man with serious injuries.

The collision happened at about 6.22pm on Sunday (December 12th) when an Audi A6 travelling along Kirkham Road towards Freckleton turned onto Hillock Lane and collided with a Yamaha motorcycle.

The motorbike rider, a 20-year-old man from Greater Manchester, suffered serious head injuries. They remain in hospital.

The driver of the A6 initially failed to stop at the scene but a suspect has subsequently come forward and will be spoken to in due course. The car has been recovered.

Sgt Michael Higginson, of Lancashire Constabulary’s Road Policing Unit, said: “This collision has left a young man with some very significant injuries and I would appeal to anyone who saw what happened, or who has CCTV or dashcam footage, to come forward and contact us.”

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 quoting log 1108 of December 12th.
