Motorcyclist collides with a pedestrian in Barton Moss

Police are appealing for witnesses to a collision between a motorbike and a pedestrian in Barton Moss.

 At around 2pm yesterday (Friday 6 June 2018), a 47-year-old woman was crossing the south bound carriageway of Liverpool Road (A57) when she was involved in a collision with a blue Triumph Motorcycle.

 The collision forced the motorbike and its 30-year-old rider to cross the central reservation onto the northbound carriageway of the road.

Emergency services responded and both were taken to hospital for treatment.

The woman sustained multiple serious injuries and her condition is described as life threatening. The man on the motorbike sustained a serious facial injury.

PC Phil Shaw, of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Firstly I want to say that my thoughts remain with the woman’s family at this incredibly tough time as she remains in hospital in a life threatening condition.

“This was a serious collision that took place on a busy road in the middle of the day so we believe there may have been a number of potential witnesses who saw the incident take place and I would like to ask those people to please come forward.

“No matter how small you think the information you hold may be, it could make a huge difference to our investigation and we are particularly keen to speak to anyone who may have dashcam footage of the incident.”

Anyone with information should contact GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 0161 856 4741 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
