The 67-year-old man was struck when crossing Wigan Road (A49) close to the Shell garage.

Lancashire Police were called around 6.35pm on Friday 28 December.

The man had been hit by a BMW 318D.

Police say the pensioner was taken to Royal Preston Hospital with a head injury and remains in a serious but stable condition.

Sergeant Malcolm Bell said: “We need anyone who was in the area at the time of the collision to come forward.

“The pedestrian was crossing the road with a group of people as it happened and so hopefully people will remember seeing him with them.

“If you have any information, please speak to us.”
