Main article content
At around 7am this morning, GMP were called to reports of a road traffic collision on Chancellor Lane, Manchester.
Within minutes, officers attended the scene, and it was established that a car travelling from the direction of the city centre lost control before colliding with a bollard with no other vehicles involved.
Emergency services also attended and medically assessed the occupants of the vehicle at the scene.
Four people were taken to hospital for treatment, but despite the best efforts of medics, a 26-year-old man has sadly passed away as a result of his injuries. Three occupants aged 23, 24 and 29 years, have suffered life threatening injuries.
