A man is having emergency surgery to save his leg after he was hit by a silver Audi in Little Hulton.

At around 7.25pm on Sunday, September 16, police were called to a collision involving a silver Audi S3 Quattro and a pedestrian outside Kebab King on Manchester Road West.

The pedestrian – an 18-year-old man – was crossing the road after leaving the takeaway when the Audi collided with him.

He was taken to hospital with serious leg injuries where he is currently receiving surgery in an attempt to save his leg.

A 29-year-old man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and remains in custody for questioning.

Anyone who saw the Audi driving prior to the collision is encouraged to come forward.

Police Sergeant Jon McColl of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said:

At the time of the collision, there would have been other pedestrians and motorists in the area who may have had dashcam footage or witnessed the incident itself happening.

We’re particularly interested in speaking to people who saw the Audi driving in the area prior to the collision – you can call our dedicated number to speak to a member of the team about any information.
