The blue Triumph motorcycle then collided with a wall opposite the pub, and the rider sustained a suspected broken arm.

The 63 year old pedestrian was taken to Royal Preston Hospital with suspected head, chest, shoulder and leg injuries.

The road was closed for three hours following the incident.  

Sergeant Claire Pearson of the Road Policing Unit said: “We are trying to establish how this collision occurred – we know there were several people in the area at the time, both on foot and in vehicles, so I would ask anyone who witnessed the collision to contact us.”
