‘He had no pulse’: Cyclist saves Preston van driver’s life after serious crash near Chorley

A cyclist jumped in and rescued a Preston driver’s life after a van veered off the road and into a ditch just meters away from him near Chorley.

Stephen Martindale, 40, a former Royal Marine from Horwich, was cycling home with a friend after visiting Southport on Friday, April 10. As they reached Bretherton, a van which was travelling in the opposite direction veered off the road and into a ditch. The driver, who wishes to remain anonymous, crashed after losing-consciousness at the wheel at around 6.30pm.

After checking the driver’s pulse, breathing and heart rate, Stephen pulled them out of the van and started CPR.
