Police are appealing for witnesses to a collision in Ashton in which the two drivers involved failed to stop at the scene.   

Yesterday evening (Thursday), a silver Sym Voyager motorbike and a Mini were driving on Park Parade, from the direction of Stalybridge, when the motorbike collided with the central reservation at around 11:45pm.

The rider and passenger of the motorbike left the scene, but the 23-year-old passenger later attended hospital where he was treated for multiple injuries.

The mini, which can only be described as having a white roof, also left the scene.

Police have launched an investigation and are appealing for the rider of the motorbike and driver of the Mini to come forward.

Police Constable Dermot Murray, of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “It’s important that we speak to the rider of the motorbike and the driver of the Mini so we can establish exactly what happened leading up to the collision.

“If you were involved or you have dash-cam footage, please get in touch as a matter of urgency.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 0161 856 4741, 101 quoting incident number 2420 3 August 2017, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
