He was flown by helicopter to Royal Preston Hospital.
A family friend said: “After around 4 hours of intensive tests in the trauma unit at the Royal Preston it was discovered that apart from cuts and bruising he had a fractured cheekbone.
“He was discharged and is recovering at his home in Penwortham.”
A spokesman for the Great North Air Ambulance said: “Miraculously he did not suffer life-threatening injuries and was treated at scene.”
