Main article content
At around 1:15pm this afternoon (Thursday 12 January 2023), officers were called to a road traffic collision between a motorbike and a pedestrian followed by a further collision between a car and the same motorbike on Stockport Road in Levenshulme.
Officers attended the scene, and the 22-year-old motorbike rider and the 22-year-old pedestrian were both taken to hospital with serious injuries.
The driver of the car fled the scene on foot.
Initial enquiries have established that the passenger of a silver Audi A5 walked down a side street off Stockport Road.
A short time later, he crossed Stockport Road through stationary traffic and a motorcyclist collided with the pedestrian. Seconds later, the driver of the silver Audi A5 intentionally drove towards the motorbike and rider, colliding with both.
The driver then left the vehicle and ran after the motorbike rider and shortly returned to his vehicle and later fled the scene on foot down Jean Close, leaving his passenger injured on the floor.
Inspector Chris Forrester of GMPs City of Manchester North district said: "There were a number of people at the scene either walking past or in cars this afternoon and we would like to speak to anyone who witnessed this incident, or who may have dash cam or CCTV footage showing the attack.
"This is an unacceptable show of violence and reckless driving, and we need the public’s assistance to help track down the offender and to further understand the circumstances.
