A MAN was taken to hospital after a late night crash in Horwich.

A white high-end vehicle is understood to have collided with a house in Chorley Old Road near the junction with Wallsuches.

The male driver of the car was taken to Royal Bolton Hospital after the crash on Saturday night.

A spokeswoman for North West Ambulance Service said: "We were called to a collision involving one vehicle in Chorley Old Road at about 11.20pm on Saturday.

"We sent one ambulance to the scene and took a patient to the hospital."

Residents said the crash occurred near Curley's Dining Rooms. One individual reported seeing police cars and an ambulance on their way to the scene.

Another said: "I came across the incident at about 2am on Sunday. I saw the car crashed into the wall but the police officer said it was a shame to see an 80,000 motor in that state."
