Two teenagers are fighting for their lives after a collision in Blackley on Saturday night

A silver Volvo S40 turned onto Rochdale Road at the junction with Hilldale Avenue and collided with a silver Renault Clio that had been travelling on Rochdale Road. The Clio then collided with a grey Ford Mondeo and a silver VW Polo.

The driver of the Renault Clio, aged 17, was taken to hospital where he is being treated for serious head injuries.

The passenger, a 19-year-old woman, was taken to hospital where she is being treated for multiple fractures and is in a serious condition.

The drivers of the other cars received minor injuries.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the collision to come forward.
