Appeal after Horton collision

Friday, January 13, 2023

We are appealing for witnesses following a serious collision on the A59, Skipton Road at Horton.

We were called at around 6am today (Friday, January 13), following a report a red BMW 320 had left the road and collided with a tree.

The only occupant, a man in his 40s from Great Harwood, suffered life-threatening injuries. He was taken to the Royal Preston Hospital where he remains in a critical condition.

Sgt Marc Glass, of the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Our thoughts are with the injured man and his family at this difficult time.

“We are investigating to establish exactly how the collision happened and I’m keen to hear from anybody who witnessed the incident and has not already spoken to police.

“If you saw what happened or have any information regarding the incident, please get in touch.

“Further, if you were driving in the area at the time and have a dashboard mounted camera in your vehicle, please get in touch."

Witnesses can contact us on 101 quoting log 0174 of January 13 or e-mail [email protected]
