Shortly before 1am on Monday 12 July 2021, police were called to reports of a collision between a white BMW 220D and a pedestrian on Ashton Road, Denton.
Emergency services attended and the pedestrian - a 49-year-old woman - was taken to hospital where despite the best work of hospital staff, she was sadly pronounced dead a short time later.
The BMW failed to stop following this collision and continued down Ashton Road, where a short while later, the car collided with an unoccupied Ford Transit which was parked at the junction where Denton Road turns onto Mayfield Street.
The BMW also failed to stop following this second collision and made off.
No arrests have been made and an investigation is ongoing.
Sergeant Andrew Page, of GMP's Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: "This is a tragic incident in which a woman has sadly lost her life. Our thoughts remain with her loved ones at this incredibly difficult time.
"We are hopeful that there are people who may have information about the driver of this BMW or witnesses to either of these collisions who may have dash cam footage of this car in the lead up or following this incident that can assist with our enquiries.
"The second collision happened on a residential street, so we are asking that people in the area please check their CCTV cameras for any footage of this BMW."
Anyone with information should contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 0161 856 4741, quoting incident number 195 of 12/07/21.
