A Lancashire Road Police spokesman tweeted: "A combination of low sun and glare from wet roads saw the car strike the rear of a parked scaffolding wagon.

"Luckily there was no front seat passenger."

The incident, close to the junction with Lawson Road, caused East Park Drive to be closed for much of the afternoon between Woodside Drive and Weymouth Road in both directions.

An ambulance service spokesman said a woman in her mid-40s was checked by crews at the scene but didn't require hospital treatment.
