/ Police investigating a road rage attack interview man

Police investigating a road rage attack on the motorway in Eccles have interviewed a man.

At around midday on Wednesday 9 November 2016 police were called after two men in a lorry were attacked by a man in a pick-up truck on the M62 in Eccles.

The two vehicles had collided as they both accessed the M62 motorway from the anti-clockwise M60, and both had pulled onto the hard shoulder.

The two men got out of their lorry to swap details with the driver of the pick-up truck, however the man became abusive, then hit the driver before reversing into the lorry.

The driver of the pick-up truck tried to get into the cabin of the lorry but when the driver and passenger locked themselves inside, he smashed the window with a spade.

A 33-year-old man was interviewed under caution in relation to dangerous driving, criminal damage and assault.

Police Constable John Cavanagh from GMP’s Roads Policing Unit said: “I would like to thank the public for their help in supporting our investigation and providing us with key information.

Anyone with any information should contact police on 0161 856 6108, 101 or anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
