Sadly, a pedestrian, an 81-year-old man, has passed away in hospital due to injuries sustained in the crash.

Investigators are appealing for more information following a fatal collision in Oldham last week.

The vehicle involved was a white Citroen Berlingo. No arrests have been made.

Detective Constable Aarron Cramer, from GMP's Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Our thoughts are with the man's loved ones at this time after a traumatic week since the incident.

“Our enquiries are ongoing, and we are now in a position to appeal to the local public if they witnessed anything in the lead up to, during or after the incident, especially those driving in the area. Any bit of evidence may help with our investigation.

“We understand this stretch of road has caused concerns and we are continuing to work with the local district and key organisations to ensure road safety remains a priority in helping to reduce fatal and serious collisions.”

Anyone with information, including CCTV or dashcam footage, is asked to get in touch with GMP’s SCIU department on 0161 856 4741 quoting incident 2007 of 15/03/2024.
