A man is in hospital with suspected internal bleeding following an accident on a Lancashire motorway.

Just after 6pm on Thursday a Skoda Fabia, a Mercedes 320 Auto and a Mazda Bongo campervan collided in lane one of the M55 westbound between junction one and three.

The driver of the Skoda, a 48 year-old-man from Lytham, was initially thought to have suffered minor injuries and was taken to Blackpool Victoria Hospital.

However, his condition deteriorated and he was transferred to Royal Preston Hospital with suspected internal bleeding.

The driver of the Mercedes suffered bruising, while the driver and two passengers of the campervan where uninjured.

Police are today appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

Sgt Gareth Hill said: “I would appeal to anybody who witnessed this collision who hasn’t already spoken to us to come forward.”
