A car has landed on its roof after crashing into a stationary vehicle during rush hour.

The black Ford Fiesta was travelling along the A56 Colne Road in Kelbrook, when it hit a white Fiat 500 and flipped onto its roof.

Emergency services were called to the incident at around 8.20am on Thursday, and ambulance personnel remain on scene attending to the injured driver.

A spokesperson for the ambulance service said: "We were called at 8.19am to Colne Road, Kelbrook, to reports of an RTC.

"An ambulance is still on scene and we are treating a man in his 20s."

The man was taken to Airdale Hospital suffering from shoulder pain.

Eye-witness, Tracy Glegg, told the Telegraph: "I didn’t think anyone was badly hurt as people were just stood around.

"I've lived in Earby for 22 years and have lost count of the number of accidents I’ve seen on this stretch of road.

"Someone is going to be killed before anything’s done.

"As it happened traffic hadn’t built up but it would've been horrendous five mins later.

"I believe the lolly pop man was knocked over further along the road last week in Foulridge."

Traffic management is in place and traffic is moving slowly along the A56 near the Craven Heifer Inn.

A spokesperson for the police said: "We were called by the ambulance service at around 8.25am to assist with a crash on Colne Road.

"A car was upside down on its roof.

"One vehicle, a Ford Fiesta crashed into a stationary car.

"Traffic management is in place while vehicle awaits recovery."
