A man was taken to hospital following a collision outside Preston Vocational Centre in St Paul's Road at around 9am this morning (July 1).

CCTV footage shows the car - which appears to be a black Ford Focus - moving to the side of the road to allow an oncoming vehicle to pass.

As the cars pass each other, the Ford clips a parked vehicle, causing it to suddenly flip onto its roof before landing in a bus bay.
