TWO men have been killed in a road accident in Blackburn last night.
The incident happened at around 11:30pm in the A674 Preston Old Road, Feniscowles.
A Volkswagen Golf was travelling towards Blackburn when it collided with a Ford Focus travelling in the opposite direction.
The driver of the golf, a 35-year-old man from Bamber Bridge, suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene.
His front seat passenger, a 34-year-old man from Blackburn, was taken to Royal Blackburn Hospital but died a short time later.
The driver of the Ford Focus, a 59-year-old man from Poulton le Fylde is in a serious condition at the Royal Blackburn Hospital.
The road was closed to allow accident investigators to carry out their work.

“A full investigation is underway to establish exactly what happened and I would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time and who may have witnessed the collision or perhaps saw the vehicles in the run up to the collision to come forward and contact the police.”
