A woman has been taken to hospital after a dramatic crash in Blackpool involving a car and a van.

Police, fire crews and paramedics were called to the junction of Coronation Street and Albert Road at 10.16pm last night (October 19).

Pictures from the scene show the front of the blue Toyota Aygo crushed, windows smashed and the air bags deployed.

The collision also resulted in the white van flipping onto its side and the destruction of an electrical unit and a traffic light.

Eyewitness reported that the white van was travelling along Coronation Street when it was involved in a collision with the car.
