POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a man was left with serious injuries when a car and a motorbike crashed in Tarleton.
Around 10am on Wednesday December 4, a Mercedes Sprinter and a yellow Honda CB600 collided at the junction of the A565 and A59 in Tarleton.
Emergency services were called to the accident scene and paramedics rushed to treat the motorcyclist who suffered significant injuries as a result of the crash.
The male rider of the motorcycle, who is in his late 20s and is from Southport, was taken to Southport Hospital but has since been transferred to Liverpool Hospital where he remains in a serious condition.
The driver of the Sprinter was uninjured in the smash.
The road was closed for a period of time while collision investigators carried out their work to try and figure out what happened during the crash.
Sergeant Jon Allwright said: “An investigation into the circumstances surrounding the collision is underway and I would ask anyone who witnessed it to contact police.”
