A 19-year-old pedestrian has died after being hit by a car.

Gabriel Fields was struck by an Audi at the junction of Station Road and Nelson Street, in Kirkham, near Preston, at about 22:00 BST on Saturday.

He sustained multiple injuries and died a short time later, Lancashire Police said.

Mr Fields' parents said the Salford University student was "a kind, loving and intelligent young man" who "had a bright future ahead of him".

"He was an amazing son, brother and friend," they added.

"Gabriel always found time for others, in particular his younger sister who adored him 'to the moon and back'."

The 30-year-old driver, who was also hurt, and three passengers with minor injuries were taken to hospital.

Police have appealed for witnesses.
