BLACK ice caused a car to career off the road and into a tree, police said.

Blackburn with Darwen neighbourhood police teams advised road users to approach Bolton Road, just south of Darwen, with caution after a vehicle skidded off the road and hit a tree this morning.

Police said the section between Ocean Palace restaurant and the turning for Green Arms Road was particularly hazardous.

No one was injured but the council was called to remove the tree, along with other debris from the road side.

The council also re-gritted the area.

Poor tree, standing there minding it’s own business and this twit comes along driving badly on ice and runs into it. It’s not as though it could get out of the way is it and now it has to be put down? It’s a cruel world . . .
