A 19-year-old man is injured in a car crash in Burnley

A 19-year-old man has been injured in a crash when a Land Rover Discovery car ended up on its roof on a road in Burnley, Lancashire.

The car was travelling along Gannow Lane at about 05:50 BST on Monday when the driver lost control, police said.

The victim suffered head injuries and police believe there was a second man in the car who helped him out of the vehicle before leaving the scene.

Officers could not confirm who was driving the vehicle at the time.

It is not known if there were any other vehicles involved in the collision.

"I would urge anybody that witnessed this incident or saw a man running away from the scene to contact police.

"It is possible that this man could also have sustained injuries in the collision that will require treatment," Sgt Dave Hogarth said.
