We are appealing for witnesses after a man died in a collision.


Emergency services were called at shortly before 8pm yesterday (Tuesday, March 15th) after an Audi A1 travelling south on Runshaw Hall Lane at Euxton left the road and collided with a tree.


The driver, a 20-year-old man from Leyland, sadly died at the scene. Two passengers, men in their 20s from Leyland, suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries, and were taken to hospital for treatment.


Sgt Peter Snook, of Tactical Operations, said: “This collision has sadly resulted in one young man losing his life and two others suffering serious injuries and my thoughts are with all those affected. I would appeal to anyone who either saw the collision or who may have CCTV, dashcam or mobile phone footage to get in touch.”


Anyone with information should call police on 101 quoting log 1348 of March 15th.
