    Local MP Rosie Cooper has commented on the latest in a spate of RTA's on County Road.

    This afternoon she told QLocal: "
    I have been fighting for road safety improvements on this stretch of road for some years, and we had recent success with the County Council agreeing to reduce the speed limit from 40mph to 30mph.


    “However, a young boy has been involved in a road traffic accident on County Road, and was taken to hospital with serious, but thankfully not life threatening, injuries.

    “I have contacted Lancashire County Council and Lancashire Constabulary to find out how this accident occurred and what further safety measures are being considered. I am told the investigation into the accident is ongoing.?

    "It was only on Friday I sat with the Director of Highways in my office and lobbied for enhanced road safety improvements on County Road which he said he would consider – now action is needed.

    “My thoughts are with the young boy and his family and wish him a speedy recovery from injuries sustained.”

    Police are now appealing for witnesses to the accident which happened early on Sunday afternoon when the teen was in collision with an empty Holmeswood coach which was returning to its depot. The company confirmed yesterday that its driver was shocked but unhurt - and that there's no dashcam footage on the accident.
