A man received hospital treatment following a collision on the A57 Snake Pass earlier this week.
We received a report just after 11.50am Tuesday 12 September by North West Ambulance Service that a car had been found off the A57 Snake Pass.
It is believed the car had left the road between Snake Pass Summit and Snake Woodland, and one person was found in the car.
The man, thought to be the driver of the vehicle, was taken to hospital for treatment of injuries which at the time were considered serious.
No other vehicles are believed to have been involved.
The road was closed for a number of hours to allow emergency services to deal with the scene and for initial investigation to take place.
Officers had been following the same car around 1.20am the same day due to concerns for a missing person, but lost sight of the vehicle shortly after.
Due to these circumstances a referral has been made to the Independent Office for Police Conduct.
