One man has died and five others were injured in a crash in Fallowfield in the early hours of this morning

Ablack Mercedes C43 AMG collided with an oncoming Skoda Octavia around 3.30 am on Yew Tree Road.

The 59-year-old driver of the Skoda Octavia sadly died at hospital a short time later. His next of kin has been informed and is being supported by specialist officers.

The road was closed for accident investigation work but has since been reopened.

Inspector Danny Byrne, of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “This is a tragic incident in which one man died and five others were injured on what should have been a night of celebration – our thoughts are with them and their loved ones as our investigation continues.

“I would like to use this opportunity to ask anyone with information or dash cam footage to contact us as soon as possible.

“We are particularly interested in hearing from anyone who saw the black Mercedes in the area prior to this collision.”
