Police are appealing for information after a fatal four-car crash in the Deepdale area on Sunday.


An 86-year-old man, who was driving a Nissan Micra, was taken to Royal Preston Hospital but has now been pronounced dead.

Preston Police say they were called to the junction of St Martin’s Road and St George’s Road at 5.30pm.

They arrived to find the Micra had collided with a Nissan Note, Audi A4 and Toyota Corolla.

It is believed the Micra had failed to give way at the junction of St George’s Road, went across the junction and collided with the three parked cars.

The road was closed for a number of hours while police investigated.

Anyone with information is asked to call the police on 101 quoting log number 1123 of October 25.
