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.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, quoting log 143 of July 2.
