The front end of a car was left mangled and one of its wheels flew off after it crashed into a lorry.

Emergency services were called to Manchester Road outside Oakhill Park in Accrington just after 12pm on Tuesday, following numerous calls that a car had been involved in a serious crash.

On arrival, police officers found the vehicle, a Peugeot, in the middle of the road, blocking the traffic.

The driver of the vehicle, a man, suffered only minor injuries and was checked over at the scene by paramedics.
