A 26-year old man has died after the car he was driving collided with a Highways Maintenance lorry which was stationary on the hard shoulder of the M56 last night.

The accident happened around 9.45 close to Junction 3 Eastbound.

A 57-year-old man and 35-year-old man were taken to hospital with minor injuries. Both men have since been discharged.

Detective Constable Emma Kennedy, of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “This is a devastating incident and our thoughts remain with the man’s family at this very difficult time.

“Our officers are working hard to find out exactly what happened in the lead up to this collision and we are appealing for anyone who may have information to come forward and speak to us.

“This is a busy motorway and we believe that there are a number of witnesses who may have dash cam footage or information that can assist us with our enquiries.”
