A man was knocked out in a collision with a car in Lawnswood Avenue, Poulton, last night, police said.
The accident happened at around 7.40pm and involved the man, thought to be in his 20s, and a white Fiat 500.
He was taken to Royal Preston Hospital, which specialises in head injury cases, amid fears he had been seriously hurt, a spokesman for Lancashire Police said.
