A 44-year-old Dukinfield man and 16-year-old youth have both been found guilty at Manchester Crown Court of causing the death of Bradley Moore in Ashton.

Mr Moore, 43, a father of four, died after he was run over by a Vauxhall Corsa driven by Jonathan Carter on the night of July 27 last year near McDonald’s in the town centre.

Carter, of Armadale Road, Dukinfield, had denied a charge of causing death by careless driving, claiming he did not see or realise he had run over Mr Moore as he left the scene after buying a McDonald’s meal.

Mr Moore was lying in Warrington Street having been punched to the ground by the 16-year-old after an altercation with a number of youths outside the fast food restaurant.

The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had denied manslaughter but was found guilty by the jury.

Carter and the youth were total strangers but stood trial together after their separate actions jointly cost Mr Moore his life.

The two are due to be sentenced on March 27.
