The passenger and driver were taken to the Royal Bolton Hospital for treatment where they have been described as in a “serious” condition.

Emergency services closed part of the A666 northbound while they attended the scene of the accident, but the road re opened shortly after.

The “Devil’s Highway”

Incorporating its numerical attraction to the devil, the A666 is commonly referred to as the “Devil’s Highway” due to its high accident rate on the moors between Darwen and Edgerton.

At the start of 2000 works were completed on the road, including speed limit changes, the introduction of speed cameras and changes to the slip roads and these improvements have seen a reduction in road traffic accidents by 60%.

Until this time the road claimed approximately 40 lives per year.
