Two small children were among those who escaped a Blackpool crash with just minor injuries.
The pair were passengers in a Vauxhall Meriva Energy when it hit a parked Toyota Auris, police said.
The emergency services were called to Penrose Avenue, which stretches from Vicarage Lane to Cherry Tree Road behind Asda in Marton, at around 7.30pm yesterday, a spokeswoman for Lancashire Police said.
The road was closed for an hour while officers dealt with the crash and the cars were recovered.
Number three buses were diverted.
