Man suffers serious injuries in collision on A6 near Lancaster

A man is in hospital with serious injuries following a collision on the A6 near Lancaster.

Police are appealing for witnesses and dashcam footage following the incident, which happened at around 5:10pm yesterday (October 5).

Emergency services were called to Preston Lancaster Road in Hampson following reports of a collision involving a Seat Ibiza and a Mercedes Sprinter van. The vehicles were travelling in the opposite direction at the time.

The driver of the Seat, an 18-year-old man from Longridge, suffered a number of serious injuries and remains in hospital.

The road was closed for a number of hours but has since re-opened.

Sgt Phil Baxendale, from Lancashire Police’s road policing unit, said: “This collision has left a young man with some very serious injuries and my thoughts are with him at this time.

“We are now working to establish exactly what caused the collision and I would ask anyone with information or dashcam footage which would assist our enquiries to contact us as soon as possible.”
