The incident happened at around 2.20am yesterday (July 2) on the Bay Gateway, close to the Morecambe Road junction.

The woman, aged in her 30s, was taken to hospital with injuries police described as ‘life-changing’. The road was closed until 7am.

Accident investigators are now appealing for anybody who saw the collision, saw either the pedestrian or the tractor in the moments before it happened, or who has dashcam or CCTV footage to come forward.

Police appeal for information

Sgt Dave Hurst, of the Lancashire Police TacOps team, said: “This collision has left a woman in hospital with serious injuries and an investigation has been launched to establish exactly what occurred.

“Perhaps you saw the collision or have dashcam or CCTV showing what happened.

“The woman was walking along the Bay Gateway in company with a man when the incident took place so we are also asking anybody who drove down the road at the time of the collision to cast their minds back and see if they can remember seeing the pair. Similarly anybody who saw the HGV in the moments before the collision should get in touch.”

Anybody with information is asked to contact police by calling the non-emergency number 101, quoting log 143 of July 2. Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously by calling 0800 555 111.
