Police say a woman who was the victim of a hit and run in south Manchester last weekend has died.
Janice de Botte, 57, and her friend, aged 70, were hit by a van at a pedestrian crossing on Princess Road in West Didsbury at around 7pm on Saturday, January 16.
Witnesses say the van hit the women, stopped briefly, then drove away from the scene. The vehicle was later found at the entrance to Wythenshawe Park.
The two women were taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries. Janice de Botte has since died from her injuries. The 70-year-old woman remains in a serious but stable condition.
Two men were arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and failing to stop at the scene of a collision. They have been released on bail pending further enquiries.
Tragically one of the women has now died from her injuries while the other remains in a serious condition in hospital. We are continuing to support their families through this difficult time.
While we have made two arrests our investigation is still ongoing to establish exactly what happened and we are urging anyone who may have witnessed the incident or seen the van before or after the collision to get in touch.
