On Tuesday 6 December 2022 at around 11:15am, GMP officers were called to a serious collision on Walmersley Road in Bury.
A Mercedes Sprinter van was travelling down the road when it collided with a 87-year-old woman close to the junction of Wolstenholme Avenue.
Emergency services attended the scene, and the driver remained to assist officers with the enquiries. The 26-year-old man was subsequently arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by careless driving and has since been released under investigation.
Sadly the woman died from her serious injuries at the weekend despite the best attempts of emergency services personnel and her family are continued to be supported by specially-trained officers.
GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU) are appealing for anyone who may have seen the incident to get in touch to help their investigation.
Officers are particularly keen to speak to anyone who may have footage, including dashcam, mobile phone or CCTV/doorbell footage from the area in the moments leading up to and before the collision took place.
Anyone with information should contact police on 0161 856 4741 quoting incident 1115 of 06/12/22.
Alternatively, details can be passed via the LiveChat function at www.gmp.police.uk or anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
