We are appealing for information following a serious collision in Clitheroe yesterday.

We were called at 12:40pm on Tuesday (5 March) to reports of a collision involving a Vauxhall Corsa and a pedal cycle on the A59 at the junction with Sawley.

The cyclist – a 70 year old man – suffered injuries to his face and was taken to Royal Preston Hospital for treatment.

The driver of the Vauxhall was not injured.

The road was closed for around four hours while emergency services attended.

Sergeant Paul Maguire of Lancashire’s Road Policing Unit, said: “A man has been injured and our thoughts are with him at this time.

“If you were in the area around the time of the collision and have any useful information or dash cam footage please get in touch with us.”

Anyone with information should email or call 101 quoting log number 519 of 5th March.
