Lancashire Police say the Preston taxi driver, aged 60, was badly shaken and treated for back, neck and arm injuries.
PC Matt Davidson from Preston Roads Policing Unit said: “I am appealing to anyone who might have seen the collision, or the blue car leaving the scene to contact me.
“This collision has taken place at a busy junction and I’m sure there would have been many people stopped waiting at the lights that will have seen what happened.
“I’d also appeal to anyone who may know the current whereabouts of this car and to any car repair garages who thinks they may have been instructed to carry out repairs to this car, which will have damage to both sides.
“Unfortunately the taxi driver has had to take his own car off the road for repairs which will result in a loss of earnings.
“Anyone with any information about this collision should contact Lancashire Police on 101 quoting log reference LC-20131026-1480.
