A dashcam has captured the terrifying moment an out of control driver goes off the road at a city park.

Ashton Park children’s play area on its southern side saw fencing destroyed by the crash.

The kids play area is on the Larches side of the park, meaning the car continued across the width of the park.

Footage shows a driver slowing as they approach Egerton Road in Ashton-on-Ribble.

A black car comes flying out of the turn across Pedders Lane and goes straight onto the grass into Ashton Park.

You can see the car take off as it mounts a hillock on the edge of the park.

Moments later a police car arrives and begins to stop traffic in the road.

The play area has been made safe by Preston City Council during Tuesday (16 April) and is available to use again.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101.
