Police and Highways England are currently dealing with a serious incident on the M6 southbound close to Charnock Richard Services.
We were called at approximately 1.45pm today to reports a pedestrian had been involved in a collision with a vehicle. The pedestrian is critically injured.
An investigation and clear up of the scene is on-going and has necessitated a full temporary closure at Junction 28 southbound near Leyland.
Chief Insp Damian Kitchen, of Lancashire Police, said: “We recognise the disruption this is causing and are working hard to re-open the road as soon as possible.
“However, at this time of day, delays through rush hour and beyond are inevitable.
“Please plan either alternate routes or delay your journey. Surrounding roads and towns are also likely to become congested.
“We will release further information when we are able.”
