Police find the car that killed a woman at a pedestrian crossing on Chester Road

Police investigating the death of a woman who was tragically killed in a collision in Hulme have traced the car.

 At around 9.25pm on Thursday 28 June 2018, a woman was crossing Chester Road, Hulme at a pedestrian crossing, near to the junction of Manson Avenue, when she was involved in a collision with a car.

The woman, aged 24, sadly died, despite best efforts from emergency services at the scene.

The woman’s family have been informed and specialist officers are now supporting them.

A 28 year old woman has been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender but the driver of the vehicle is still outstanding.

The vehicle, a silver Ford Mondeo, was found parked up in the North Reddish area of Stockport.

Police Sergeant Danny Byrne of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Enquiries have been ongoing throughout the day to trace the car and find the driver.

We found a car matching the description we had been given and have now confirmed it was the car that was involved in the collision.

We have arrested a woman on suspicion of assisting an offender, she is now in police custody for questioning.

“I would like to directly appeal to the driver to come and talk to police, you know who you are, you know what happened, you should do the right thing now. We won’t stop until we find you.

“My thoughts continue to be with the woman’s family, I can’t imagine what her loved ones are going through.  I want to be in a position to answer all of their questions, and I can only do that with help from those who know what happened.

“I would also like to renew my appeal to anyone who witnessed the collision to come forward, or for anyone who might know where the driver is to get in touch with police.

“We are still collecting dash-cam footage, so if you managed to capture the incident or the Silver Mondeo driving to or away from the scene, then please pass your footage to police.
