Officers said the car - a dark-coloured saloon - briefly stopped after hitting her, before driving off.

Sgt Phil Baxendale of Lancashire Police’s Tac Ops Division said: “A woman is in hospital in a serious condition and our thoughts are very much with her at this time.

“We are treating this as a fail to stop collision and need anyone who may have seen the vehicle described, or the collision itself, to come forward with information.

“I would also appeal directly to the driver of the car to search their conscience and do the right thing. If this is you, you need to come forward and speak to us.”

Anyone with information should call us on 101 quoting log number 1528 of 15 September.
