The North West Ambulance Service, which sent two vehicles, said that two casualties, one of whom was a woman, were taken to Wigan Infirmary but their conditions are not known.

A passer-by said it was suggested that the vehicles had skidded on a patch of spilt diesel.

The collision, near to the former Spring View Police Station and a thankfully unoccupied at the time, bus stop caused long tailbacks in the Ince and Platt Bridge areas as the scene was investigated and the wreckage cleared away.
