and live on Freeview channel 276
The crash happened near a mini roundabout in Balshaw Lane, close to the entrance to the train station, at 6.10pm.
In a video taken at the scene, a red 4X4 appears to be on the wrong side of the road where it collided with a white Ford Fiesta, causing damage to both cars.
No one was injured, but the road was shut between The Talbot pub and Wigan Road (A49) whilst police and fire crews attended.
Officers remained at the scene until after 9pm and the road closure led to a long queue of northbound traffic along Wigan Road, as the damaged cars awaited recovery.
A Lancashire Police spokesman said: “We were called at 6.10pm, it was damage only collision between two cars.”
The force has not said how the accident occurred or whether anyone was reported.
