A pedestrian is fighting for his life after being hit by a car in Openshaw. Police were called to Turton Road just before 1.10am on Sunday following a collision. Witnesses say they saw a dark-coloured estate driving away from the scene. A 64-year-old man suffered serious injuries.
He's been taken to hospital for treatment to multiple fractures to his body and a head injury. He remains in a critical condition. It is believed the dark coloured estate would have sustained front end and windscreen damage.
"I am certain that the driver would have known that they were involved in a collision. A man has been left fighting for his life so it vital that we speak to anyone with knowledge about this incident. I appeal to the driver to do the right thing, come forward and talk to us."
– Sergeant Brian Orr, of the Serious Collision Investigation Unit
