The driver of the Kia suffered a serious injury to his upper chest and remains in hospital. The occupants of the Volkswagen were less seriously injured.

Police say nobody has been arrested at this time and officers are appealing for witnesses and dashcam footage, Lancs Live reports.

Sgt Helen Parkinson, of our Serious Collision Investigation Unit, added: “A woman has lost her life, and first and foremost my thoughts are with her loved ones at this distressing time.

“We are working to establish the full circumstances of what led to the collision and I would ask anybody with information or footage which could assist our enquiries to contact us as soon as possible.”
