POLICE are appealing for witnesses after two teenage boys were injured when a car collided with a tree in Silverdale.

The boys were in a silver Peugeot 106 which was travelling along Storrs Lane at around 8.25pm on Tuesday, when the driver somehow lost control and the car collided with a tree.

The driver of the car, a 17-year-old from Lancaster, suffered serious head injuries and was taken to the Royal Lancaster Infirmary.

He was later transferred to Royal Preston Hospital where he is said to be in a critical but stable condition.

One of the rear seat passengers, a 16-year-old from Lancaster, suffered a broken leg, while three other passengers were uninjured.

The road was closed for three hours to allow for recovery of the vehicle and collision investigation.

Sgt Malcolm Bell said: “An investigation is underway to establish the circumstances surrounding this collision.

“If anybody witnessed it then I would ask them to contact police.

“I am also keen to speak with anybody who thinks they may have seen the car being driven in the area prior to the collision.”
