Written by on June 29, 2020

A car has crashed into a lamp post in Preston over the weekend.

Police were called to Haighton Green Lane in the town on Sunday (June 28) after the head on collision at around 1pm.

Several police vehicles including a police car and van blocked the road following the smash which happened close to a farm building near to the Fernyhalgh Lane junction.

A closure was put in place while recovery was called to the scene to remove the vehicle.

One social media user said: “Something happening down D’Urton Lane. Best avoiding.”

No injuries resulted following the smash.

Lancashire Constabulary confirmed they attended the scene, but added that it was a damage-only collision.

No further details were given.

Haighton Green Lane has since reopened.
