A man was seriously injured after crashing into a tree on the A59 near Samlesbury on Sunday (November 6).
The crash happened at around 7.15am when a Kia Stinger travelling east towards Samlesbury veered off the road and hit a tree.
Emergency services attended and fire crews used cutting equipment to rescue the driver from the wrecked car.
The casualty, a Wigan man aged in his 20s, was taken to hospital with multiple serious injuries.
