A yellow Fiat 500 car was left embedded in the back of a white Ford tipper truck – and police said its driver blamed the ‘low sun’.
The crash happened in Preston New Road, Marton, shortly before 7.25am today, and saw the Fiat’s driver, a woman in her mid-60s, taken to Blackpool Victoria Hospital.
Her injuries were described as “minor cuts and bruises” by the North West Ambulance Service, while a spokesman for Lancashire Police said she had some “bleeding”.
Writing on the road police’s Twitter account, an officer said the driver had a “lucky escape” and added: “Fortunately no front seat passenger. Low sun given as an explanation...”
The road remained open to traffic.
