The Peugeot came to a stop after colliding with a crash barrier at the other side of the Junction 4 roundabout and narrowly avoiding the helter-skelter structure, while the Citroen’s rear wheel hit a van travelling in the opposite direction on Progress Way.

The man in his 70s and two others were taken to Blackpool Victoria Hospital.

All of the vehicles have been cleared from the road, but traffic is moving slowly.

The Air Ambulance was called to the scene but it was stood down on arrival when it was decided the pensioner could be taken to hospital by road.
