Emergency services, including the air ambulance, were scrambled to the incident on Ashton Road in Billinge, at around 2.50pm this afternoon (February 16).
The 17-year-old driver has since been taken to hospital with serious injuries.
Pictures taken of the scene show a fire crew working on getting the motorist safely out of the shattered vehicle and the road, which is part of the “two-mile stretch” sealed off to traffic in both directions.
