Driv­ers badly in­jured in two crashes on same road

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Front Page -

A MA­JOR road was closed twice in the space of 13 hours as driv­ers were badly hurt in crashes.

Emer­gency ser­vices first at­tended Cause­way Lane (A59) in Ruf­ford on Fri­day when a car and lorry col­lided.

A man in his 40s suf­fered a sus­pected med­i­cal episode and a spokesman for North West Am­bu­lance Ser­vice con­firmed that he was taken to hospi­tal for treat­ment.

Early the next morn­ing, an­other driver was taken to hospi­tal af­ter a Volk­swa­gen Golf was flipped onto its roof.

The crash oc­curred fur­ther along the A59 and saw the driver sus­tain back in­juries which re­quired hospi­tal treat­ment.

The woman, in her 60s, is un­der­stood to take the jour­ney reg­u­larly at that time of day and was not speed­ing when the crash oc­curred.

No other ve­hi­cles were in­volved in that col­li­sion.

On Sun­day morn­ing, po­lice, fire and am­bu­lance ser­vices were all called when a car crashed into an elec­tric­ity pole in Orm­skirk.

The car hit the pole in Lye­lake Lane, near War­breck Gar­den Cen­tre, caus­ing sig­nif­i­cant dam­age.

Paramedics at­tended to the driver at the scene and hospi­tal treat­ment was not needed.
