Lancashire Police said the road was closed near the Hesketh Arms pub.

A 14 year old boy has died overnight following the incident.

Trevor Edwards who was in the area said: “Road closed both ways. There is a pile of what looks to be used dressings in the middle of the road. Lighting is very poor. No one outside the Police line knows precisely what has happened but there are two cars on the side of the road leaving town pulled over.”

The pub stands at the roundabout where Blackpool Road joins New Hall Lane.

Delays were expected as police dealt with the collision which happened around 10.20pm on Tuesday.
