We are appealing for witnesses and footage after two men were left critically injured following a serious collision in Lytham.

Our officers were called to Blackpool Road at 12.02am today (September 14) following reports a Toyota Landcruiser had left the carriageway and gone down an embankment.

The driver, an 18-year-old man from Lytham, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of drink-driving and causing serious injury by dangerous driving. He remains in custody at this time.

The vehicle’s three passengers all suffered serious injuries.

A man in his 20s suffered serious head injuries and is in a critical condition in hospital; a second man in his 20s suffered a number of serious injuries and is in a critical condition is in hospital; and a 19-year-old girl suffered a serious leg injury and is also in hospital.

Sgt Tom Malley, from our Road Policing Unit, said: “This collision has left two young men critically injured and a woman seriously injured. My thoughts are very much with them and their loved ones at this time.

“We are working to establish the full circumstances of what led to the collision and I would ask any witnesses or anybody who has CCTV or dashcam footage which captured the Toyota prior to the collision to contact police as soon as possible.”
