A forty seven year old man has died in hospital following Tuesday afternoon’s car accident in Benchill.

A black Kia Picanto careered into the man as well as his nine year old daughter, a 27 year-old woman and her two-year-old son, who was in a pushchair.

The man’s daughter sustained some minor cuts and bruises. The woman was treated for a broken wrist and her son was uninjured.

Enquiries are ongoing into the cause of the collision. No arrests have been made.

Constable Ed Lister of GMP⿿s Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: ⿿My thoughts are with the man and his family. I can’t begin to imagine what they are going through. Our specialist officers are helping them through this incredibly difficult time.

Our investigation is still ongoing and we are still appealing for witnesses. We would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or who may have dash-cam footage showing the collision.”
