The family of a man who died after being knocked down by a car in Rishton have paid tribute to him.
Grandad-of-five Frank Fielding, 80, was in collision with a white Vauxhall Nova as he crossed High Street on Tuesday, October 18 at around 5pm.
The popular Royal British Legion member suffered serious head and leg injuries and was taken to Royal Blackburn Hospital in a critical condition but was sadly pronounced dead a short time later.
Frank’s family said: "Frank will be very sadly missed by his close family, daughters Mandy and Pam, son Mark and his five grandchildren.
"Frank served in the Royal Horse Guards for 10 years based in Chelsea and Windsor and was a popular character in Rishton known to many as an active member of the Conservative club and Royal British Legion."
The driver of the Nova car who had been travelling towards the Dunkenhalgh Hotel was also injured and was taken to hospital to receive treatment.
Officers investigating the cause of the collision are asking for the driver of a white, soft top cabriolet type vehicle to come forward.
Sgt Dave Hogarth of the Road Policing Unit said: "We believe this car was travelling along High Street away from Blackburn towards the Dunkenhalgh Hotel at the time of the collision.
"We believe that the person / people in this car could potentially be crucial witnesses to what happened and I would urge them to come forward and contact us."
He added: "We are still working to establish exactly what has happened."
