A FREAK accident involving one car being crushed by a lamp post has closed one lane of Centenary Way in Burnley.
The accident happened just before rush hour when a lamp post collapsed on top of a car driving up the road. Two men managed to escape.
It is believed that a car hit the lamp post in an earlier incident and had weakened it.
The road is closed between the two roundabouts on the Tesco side while emergency services investigate.
There were tailbacks from 7-30 a.m.
