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.
A stretch of the A59 near the scene was closed for over seven hours before police reopened the road at around 4pm.
Sgt Chris Evans from South TacOps said: “This collision has left a young man with some very serious injuries, and I would appeal to anyone who saw the collision itself, or the Kia in the moments before the collision, or who has dashcam footage, to get in touch.”
