This is a horrific set of circumstances in which several members of a family, including a woman who was nine months pregnant, and a pedestrian have been badly injured during a collision.
The woman’s baby was delivered by emergency C-section at hospital and although he is making good progress, unfortunately his mother remains in a critical condition.
We are carrying out a full investigation to establish the exact circumstances leading up to this incident and are keen to hear from anyone that saw the 51-plate silver Volkswagen Golf driving along Great Ancoats Street prior to this collision, or in the nearby area, to contact us.
Anyone with information is asked to directly contact officers at the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 0161 856 4741.
