A DRIVER is in a serious condition in hospital after losing control of his car on the M6.

The 26-year-old man, from the Thornton-Cleveleys area, suffered head injuries and was taken to Royal Preston Hospital after he lost control of his BMW car and rolled down an embankment at 7.10pm yesterday.

Police believe he was travelling in lane three prior to the exit slip road at junction 29 when the car mounted the curb and rolled several times before colliding with trees and coming to a stop.

An investigation is underway and police are appealing for any witnesses to contact them.

Sgt Finn Quainton from the Force Road Policing Unit said: “I would appeal to anybody that witnessed this crash or saw the car being driven prior to the collision to come forward and contact Lancashire Police on 101.”

The motorway was closed for four hours between to allow collision investigation to take place.
