Three charged following Bolton crash

Three people have been charged following a road crash in Bolton that left a 12-year-old boy fighting for his life. The incident on St Helens Road also left ten others injured. The men will appear before magistrates later.

As a result of our inquiries, we have now charged three people. We understand how emotional and distressing this incident has been, not just for the families of everyone involved but across the wider community, and we will continue our inquiries to establish all the facts before this matter goes before a court. Our thoughts remain with the family of everyone involved and we continue to support the family of the young boy and hope he continues with his recovery.
