POLICE are renewing their appeal for witnesses to come forward after a couple suffered serious injuries after being hit by a car that mounted the pavement and collided with them as they walked towards Haslingden.

The incident happened around 5pm on Tuesday 10th December when a Ford Focus and a Peugeot 307 collided on Grane Road at the junction with Waterside Road.

As a result of the collision the Peugeot 307 mounted the pavement and collided with a man and a woman who were walking towards Haslingden.

The 41 year old woman from Helmshore was taken to Royal Preston Hospital with two broken legs while her 36 year old husband was taken to Royal Blackburn Hospital with a deep cut to his head.

The driver of the Focus was uninjured while the driver of the 307 suffered minor injuries.

Sergeant Tracey Ward said: “Our investigation into the circumstances surrounding this collision is on-going but we still need anybody that witnessed this incident to come forward and call police on 101.”
