    POLICE are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a man and a woman were injured in a four car road traffic collision in Tarleton this morning (Monday 25th February).

    The collision took place at 8am on the A59 Liverpool Road at Tarleton, outside Old School Houses around half a mile prior to the traffic lights at the junction with Windgate.

    A grey Nissan Qashqai has been travelling from Rufford towards Tarleton when it has been involved in a head on collision with a black Vauxhall Corsa travelling from Tarleton towards Rufford.

    The female driver of the Corsa and a male passenger in the Qashqai were taken by ambulance to the Royal Preston Hospital. The man is being treated for suspected spinal injuries and the woman for whiplash and minor facial injuries.

    A grey Nissan Almeria travelling behind the Corsa and a silver WV Passat travelling behind the Qashqai were also involved in the collision.

    Sergeant James Power said: “This collision has taken place on a main road at rush hour so I would appeal to anybody that witnessed it to come forward and contact Lancashire Police on 101.”
    The A59 was closed at the junction with A565 with traffic diverted through Croston whilst recovery took place.

    Those pics look horrific, hope everyone survived.

    It's a sad sign of the times that there are almost more people taking pics (photographer in first pic being taken by Q photographer) than there are emergency service personnel in attendance, and I see that some of them are plastic policemen

    Dont know what is going on this morning, M6 is shut, serious accident on A59 at Clitheroe and A6 shut too. Monday morning rush hour madness.

    Hope all concerned in this RTC are OK, and thank goodness we still have the Air Ambo (but dont forget, it is a charity, so support them when you can)

    So two people taking photos, One for this site and maybe the other might have even been in one of the cars, and was taking it as evidence. Oh and those 'plastic' policemen are there help the victims.

    Hope everyone involved is O.K. looks a nasty crash.

    With regards to my last comment, new pics have now been posted after the fire service arrived.

    They seem to have taken the roofs off both the cars on the right of the pics, a sign of suspected spinal injuries. Once again, hope all are OK.

    Not having a pop at any of the emergency services, son, just the authorities who are constantly and savagely cutting back the emergency services. Plastic policemen cost about half of a real bobby, and do not have the same training.

    The aftermath looks awful hope the people involved are ok. The comment on plastic policemen seems a bit harsh. In a situation like this surely it's all hands on deck. I have been a qualified nurse for many years and have worked along side many unqualified staff.
    Believe me it's not always the trained ones that give the best service. I have worked with many auxiliary nurses who have Been far more efficient than some of the trained staff.
    I just wonder if this applies in the police. Worth a thought !!!

    Unfortunately, it would appear that someone from the area has also been involved in the bad M6 crash.

    Thoughts are with all concerned.
