Lancashire road traffic accident threatens pensioner's life

A Lancashire pensioner has been hospitalised with serious personal injuries following a road traffic accident in which he and his labrador were knocked down by a Hyundai Coupe. The pedestrian's leg has since been amputated, and the dog did not survive the crash.

Reporters at the car accident, which occurred between Bolton and Chorley, believe that the 78-year-old was trying to cross the road when the collision occurred. The crash closed the A6 for most of the afternoon.

Doctors were forced to amputate his right leg below the knee due to the severity of his leg injuries. He has also suffered head injuries and his condition is described as life-threatening.

The driver and passenger involved in the road traffic accident were not injured.
