Man suffers internal bleeding after collision

POLICE are appealing for information following a collision on the M55 motorway involving two cars and a campervan.

Just after 6pm last night (Thursday 16 January), a Skoda Fabia, a Mercedes 320 Auto and a Mazda Bongo campervan collided in lane one of the M55 westbound between junction 1 and 3.

The driver of the Skoda, a 48 year old man from Lytham, was initially thought to have suffered minor injuries and was taken to Blackpool Victoria Hospital.

However, his condition deteriorated and he was transferred to Royal Preston Hospital with suspected internal bleeding.

The driver of the Mercedes suffered bruising, while the driver and two passengers of the campervan where uninjured.

Sergeant Gareth Hill said: “I would appeal to anybody who witnessed this collision who hasn’t already spoken to us to come forward.”
