They found that a Peugeot 107 car and a Kawasaki motorbike had collided.

The motorcyclist, a man in his 30s, was taken to hospital with head injuries and is in a serious condition.

Sgt Matt Davidson from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: "First and foremost our thoughts are with all those affected by the collision yesterday.

"I would also like to thank local residents for their patience whilst Broadsman Road was closed for a number of hours whilst investigation work was carried out.

"We know from our enquiries that a number of people will have seen the motorcycle prior to the collision and I am particularly keen for those people to get in touch."

If anyone witnessed the collision or the lead up to it, or has dashcam or CCTV footage from the area around the time, please contact 101 or email the Serious Collision Investigation Unit at SCIU@lancashire.police.uk – quoting log 1098 of 20th March 2024.
