A spokesman for Lancashire Police said: "It’s a collision between two vehicles - a lorry and a car - and a pedestrian is involved.

"The driver of the car has gone to hospital with serious injuries.

"The road is closed both ways between Norcross roundabout and Morrisons."

An ambulance service confirmed that the casualty is a woman in her 80s.

An NWAS spokesman added: "An ambulance, rapid response vehicle and an advanced paramedic attended a road traffic collision in Amounderness Way, following a 999 call at 11.17am.

"We have taken a woman in her 80s, who was driving one of the vehicles involved, to hospital."

As of 2pm, Amounderness Way remains closed both ways with queuing traffic due to accident investigation work between Victoria Road (Morrisons roundabout) and Fleetwood Road South (Norcross Roundabout).

The road closure has led to traffic congestion in the area which is affecting shoppers visiting Morrisons.

A fire service spokesman added: "Two fire engines from Bispham and Fleetwood were called to a road traffic collision involving a car and a lorry on Amounderness Way, Cleveleys.

"Firefighters used two sets of cutting equipment and worked with paramedics to release one person from the car.

"The casualty was later treated by paramedics."
