A 56-year-old man has died after a car smash in Trafford overnight.

Two vehicles collided near the junction of Seymour Grove with Kings Road around 2.00am resulting in a fire involving one of the vehicles.

A 35-year-old man was detained and taken to hospital, where he remains.

Sergeant Andrew Page, of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “This was a devastating incident which tragically resulted in the death of a man – our thoughts are with his family and friends.   

“An investigation is underway and officers are working hard to establish the full circumstances surrounding the collision.

“If anyone has any information or dash cam footage filmed in the area at the time of the collision or shortly before, I would ask them to contact us as soon as possible as it may assist us with our enquiries.”
