A MAN has been seriously injured in a crash on the A6 near Blackrod.

The smash took place on the A6 between Blackrod and Adlington, near to the Cherry Tree Pub, when a Toyota Yaris and a Bentley Continental collided just before 5pm.

Firefighters from Horwich were on the scene and the 20-year-old male driver of the Yaris had to be cut free from his car, which had been crushed in the incident.

He was put on a spinal board and taken to hospital by amubulance with suspected neck injuries and bleeding from his face, head and legs.

It is thought he was not wearing his seat-belt at the time.

The driver of the Bentley, a 46-year-old man believed to be from Samlesbury in Lancashire, was also taken to hospital with suspected neck injuries.

Police had closed a section of the A6 because of the large amount of debris left from both cars but it is now open.

A David and Goliath moment but I do hope the Yaris driver pulls through OK.
