A 17-month-old girl and a 50-year-old-man died in a car collision in Tarleton yesterday.
At 8.26am, police were called to reports of that a Land Rover Discovery had collided with a Mini Cooper and then a tree, on Hesketh Lane near to the junction with Oaklands Avenue.
The two people were pronounced dead at the scene. Their loved ones are being supported by trained officers.
Now police are appealing to anyone who may have information or footage of the incident.
The driver of the Mini was taken to hospital with minor injuries.
Hesketh Lane was closed in both directions between Firbank Avenue and Gorse Lane for a number of hours.
Sgt Matt Davidson, of Lancashire Constabulary’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “These are terribly sad and tragic circumstances that have resulted in a man, and a young girl losing their lives. Our thoughts are very much with their loved ones at this awful time.
“We would ask that you refrain from speculation online and would like to thank the members of the local community for their patience and understanding whilst our officers carried out their investigations today.
“We are now appealing to you, the public, to ask that if you witnessed this collision, or have any dashcam or CCTV footage from Hesketh Lane or the surrounding areas between 8:00am and 8:30am on Sunday to please get in contact.
“We believe that there are people who may have witnessed the collision, or the white Land Rover Discovery in the moments beforehand, that we have not yet spoken to. If that is you, or you know someone who may have witnessed this collision, please get in touch.”
