The collision, between a Suzuki motorcycle and a Toyota Prius, occurred in Longsight Road, outside Tiggis Restaurant, Clayton-le-Dale, at around 2pm on Saturday May 22.

The 35-year-old man from Buckshaw Village, suffered serious head injuries and was taken to the Royal Preston Hospital, where he remains in a serious condition, with a family liaison officer appointed to support his family, while the Toyota occupants were uninjured.

"Perhaps you saw the collision, or saw either of the vehicles involved in the moments before the collision occurred.

"We would also ask anybody with dashcam or CCTV to get in touch."

Anyone with any information can call police on 101, quoting log number 854 of May 22.
