Darwen road reopens after accident
6:11pm Sunday 21st October 2012 in News
A MOTORCYCLIST and his passenger suffered serious injuries after a bike left a rural road near Darwen.
An investigation is underway after the pair came off a motorbike at Stones Bank Road, near the A666 at Egerton, at around 5pm.
A Lancashire Police spokesman said that the couple’s injuries were thought to be ‘serious but not life threatening’.
No other vehicle is believed to have been involved in the teatime crash, close to Delph Reservoir.
Emergency services gave consideration to drafting in the Helimed service, because of the remote location of the incident.
But eventually the male rider was taken by a road ambulance to the Royal Preston Hospital for injuries including broken ribs. His female passenger was taken to the Royal Blackburn Hospital in a similar condition.
The main A666 road between Egerton and Darwen was closed for just over an hour while the casualties were dealt with.
