Crash in Standish
Earlier today there was a road traffic accident. I have heard this was because a car travelling up from the church and going over the crossroads towards the motorway. The car had been stationary at the green traffic light and then when it changed to red the car went forward. However, there was a lorry coming from Wigan and travelling over towards Chorley went through the green light and stuck the car. After the vehicle had been struck people went to the male driver and see if he was OK, He was in a state of shock and then after a brief conversation put the car in gear and drove forward up the wrong way and then hit another car and barrier. This is the position of the car in the picture.
Luckily all drivers of this car, the lorry and the other car that was hit were all OK thankfully.
