Officers are appealing for witnesses to a two-car collision that occurred at 21:05 hours on Monday 24 October 2022.
A silver Vauxhall Insignia was stationary at a red traffic light signal on Dickenson Road, at the junction with Birch Hall Lane (on the left), Longsight, when another vehicle – a silver Ford Mondeo – collided with the rear.
Although the airbags were deployed in the Ford Mondeo, there were no visible injuries reported by either party.
Both drivers swapped details and returned home. Unfortunately, the driver of the Ford Mondeo was found to have died a few hours later. Specialist officers have been deployed to support the family of the man at this sad time.
