A police hunt is underway for two men who fled the scene of a serious late-night car crash.

Police were called around 8pm yesterday to Garstang Road West, Blackpool.

A blue BMW M4 car had collided with a Skoda Citigo, mounted a grass verge and crashed into a metal fence.

Two men fled inside the BMW, leaving a 25-year-old female passenger at the scene with a leg injury. She was taken to Royal Preston Hospital.

The driver of the Skoda, a 57-year-old woman from Poulton, and a passenger in the car, a 55-year-old woman from Blackpool, each suffered a broken wrist. They were taken to Blackpool Victoria Hospital.

The road was closed for more than six hours while accident investigators attended the scene.

Police are appealing for information following the collision.
