A NEW electronic sign warning motorists about their speed will be installed on a 'danger road' following a major crash.

Park Lee Road residents say the street, which is limited to 20mph and is home to East Lancashire Hospice and Longshaw Junior School, still has issues with speeding cars.

Now Blackburn with Darwen Council has vowed to take action on the road in Ewood.

It comes after a van ploughed into a front garden on Sunday evening.

A witness said the van 'came flying down' Park Lee Road before misjudging the turn onto Sunnybank Road and smashing through a fence.

A council spokesman said a variable speed sign will be installed in the next few weeks.

Park Lee Road road resident Neil Parker contacted the council in 2014 about dangerous speeding on the road.

He said: "They go up and down at about 60mph.

"There are a lot of people who are elderly who live around here and they struggle to cross the road.

"The big worry is that someone comes down at speed and hits someone in the road.

"I saw the van go past. It was just like a white flash. Then I heard screeching and a crash.

"You can see where they have tried to turn left onto Sunnybank Road and gone over into the garden.

"If you come at a corner that fast there's no way you can make it."

Two men were arrested on suspicion of drink driving and the van had to be removed by a recovery truck.
