A family have paid tribute to a ‘genuine and caring father’ who died following a collision in Bolton last week.
Officers were called to the northbound M61 to reports an Audi A5 had been involved in a collision at about 5:25am on 27 May 2022.
Emergency services attended and Peter Howorth, 32, was treated at the scene and taken to hospital where he sadly later died.
His family said: “Peter was loved by everyone that met him. A genuine and caring guy with a big heart who loved life.
“A wonderful father, fiancé, son, brother and uncle. His family and friends are beyond devastated, words cannot express how much he will be missed by so very many people."
Officers from GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit are continuing to investigate the collision and anyone with information is asked to get in touch.
Sergeant Neil Pennington, from our Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Our thoughts are with Peter’s family who are currently being supported by specialist officers and are understandably devastated at losing a loved one.
“We’re continuing to ask anyone who may have seen anything or may have any dashcam footage to get in touch.
“Those with information or dashcam footage should call 0161 856 4741 quoting incident 412 of 27/05/2022. Information can also be reported online or by using the LiveChat function at www.gmp.police.uk. If you can't report online, call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
