A woman was lucky to escape with her life after a car veered off the road and crashed into a pub just yards away from her.

The woman, who has asked not to be named, narrowly avoided being hit by a black Ford Fiesta outside the York Hotel in Morecambe.

“I had just come off the step, if I had been standing on it, it would have hit me,” said the woman.

“The car was on the wrong side of the road and the driver lost control in front of the pub. It was scary.”

There was no significant damage to the pub following the crash just after midnight on November 9.

Mick Dennison, landlord of the York, said: “The car came off worst, it was completely written off.” Three men were witnessed fleeing the scene. If you have any information about this incident contact police on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 55111.
