Emergency services attended and enquiries established a silver Vauxhall Zafira had been travelling along Chorley Road in the direction of Adlington before leaving the carriageway and colliding with wooden fencing and a tree close to The Cherry Tree restaurant.
Two men, aged 45 and 49, were taken to hospital with serious injuries where they currently remain for treatment.
No other injuries have been reported and no arrests have been made.
