Police are trying to find the driver of a car that was involved in a serious accident in Blackburn.

The driver of the Honda suffered serious chest injuries, while a passenger in the Vauxhall has a serious hip injury.

But the driver of the Vauxhall left the scene before police arrived.

The road had to be closed for five hours after the accident.
