A paramedic was forced to scramble to safety after being deliberately driven at by a motorist in Blackpool, emergency services said.
The medic was on-duty and crossing Bournemouth Road in South Shore when they were targeted by a silver Toyota 4x4.
They 'managed to move out of the way', police said, but hurt their ankle doing so.
A manhunt was launched for the driver, who was described as a white man aged around 60.
A North West Ambulance Service spokeswoman declined to comment further, but confirmed an investigation was underway.
Lancashire Police appealed for witnesses on Saturday, saying the incident happened a week earlier at 9.10pm.
Information can be reported by calling 101, quoting LC-20180317-1339.
