A 97-year-old man has suffered a broken leg after a collision with a car yesterday evening.
Paramedics and police were called to Manchester Road in Accrington close to the Park Inn after the pensioner was in collision with a Citroen Saxo while he was crossing the road.
He was taken to hospital with a broken leg. His condition was not said to be serious.
The incident happened shortly after 5pm on Wednesday and the road was partly closed for around 50 minutes.
Police said no arrests were made in connection with the incident.
Inspector John Fryer said: "He was clipped by the vehicle outside the pub while he was crossing the road.
"It wasn't the worst collision in the world but due to his age it is unfortunate he has suffered these injuries. It's quite nasty breaking your leg at any age but particularly at 97.
"He was kept in hospital overnight for observation and he was sat up and talking."
