A Lancashire man has been seriously hurt after being hit by a car.

The 45-year-old suffered suspected fractures to his foot but his condition is not life-changing.

It happened in Colne on Friday night (17th March) at around 9:50pm at the junction of Windy Bank and Norfolk Street.

A grey Peugeot 207 hit a Mini Countryman as the Mini turned right out of a supermarket car park.

The car then crashed into the pavement and hit the pedestrian.

Here's where it happened:

The man from Colne was rushed to Royal Preston Hospital where he's still getting treatment.

Police are now looking for anyone who might have seen what happened.

Sergeant Adam Dawson of the Roads Policing Unit said:

"This collision has left a man with some serious injuries and we would now like to piece together exactly what occurred.

"We would urge anybody with information about the collision to contact us as soon as possible."

Anybody with information is asked to contact police on 101, quoting log number 1433 of March 17th.
