DC Dean Craik, investigating, has appealed to drivers who were in the area at the time: “We’re interested in hearing from anyone who was travelling along the A6102 Manchester Road that day (24 July) at around 7pm. In particular, I want to hear from people who were on the section of road between Vaughton Hill and More Hall Lane. 

“Did you see any vehicles driving strangely or erratically? Did you notice anything unusual that day? We would really like to hear from you. I’m also keen for anyone who has dashcam footage of this stretch of road, that evening to contact us.” 

If you can help, please call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111. Please quote incident 831 of 24 July 2019 when passing on information.
