Two people had to be taken to hospital following a crash involving several vehicles.

One of the cars, a black Volkswagen Golf, was written off, with pictures sent to the Lancashire Telegraph showing the whole front end damaged. 

The incident took place in Colne Road, Earby, at around 8.30pm on Friday (September 29).

Emergency services were called to the scene and at one point, fire crews had to use a gas monitor to make sure the area was safe.

Two people were taken to hospital but are now back home having suffered minor injuries.

One of the images shows debris strewn all over the road after a silver BMW ploughed into the VW Golf.
