A TEENAGER is in a serious condition in hospital after being cut out of her car on Saturday evening.

The police, fire service and paramedics were called to Centenary Way in Burnley at around 5.45pm to reports of a crash.

An 18-year-old woman from Burnley was taken to the Royal Preston Hospital after she crashed her red Mini Cooper into a tree. Firefighters had to use cutting equipment to get her out of the vehicle. 

An 18-year-old man, also from Burnley, was travelling as a passenger in the car and was taken to the Royal Blackburn Hospital for treatment.

Both the driver and passenger are now said to be stable.

The road was closed to allow for collision investigation work. Police are now appealing for witnesses.

Sgt Steve Hardman of Lancashire’s Tactical Operations Unit, said: “We’re working hard to establish exactly what happened and would ask that anyone who witnessed the collision comes forward as soon as possible.

"Likewise, if you have any dash cam footage which would aid our investigation, we would like to hear from you.”
