The 88-year-old fell into the road at the corner of Tag Lane and The Coppice in Ingol during Thursday afternoon.
Anna Parkinson said around half-a-dozen people came to the pensioner’s age.
She told Blog Preston: “I’d just like to thank those who stopped to help my gran.
“They stayed with her, kept her warm and reassured her until her sons and the ambulance arrived.
“We still have a blanket belonging to a woman who came out of her house to help which we’d gladly return.
“My gran is the absolute queen of our family, she has three sons, six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren who love her dearly.
“We are forever grateful for those who came to her aid that day.”
Anna’s grandmother was taken to Royal Preston Hospital and treated for cuts and bruises to her face and a small fracture to her wrist.
