Officers appeal for information following a fatal road traffic collision in Heywood

Around 3.15am this morning (Monday 1 July 2024), we received a report of a road traffic collision that had occurred on York Street, Heywood.

Initial enquiries suggest that a Dacia Sandero was travelling on Bolton Road in Heywood where it failed to stop for a liveried police patrol.

A short pursuit commenced onto Rochdale Road East. A few moments later a decision was made to discontinue the pursuit.

Shortly after the discontinuation, the Dacia collided with a business property on York Street. Sadly, the driver of the vehicle, a male, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Following the police contact prior to the collision, in-line with normal procedure, the matter has been referred to the Independent Office for Police Conduct.

Officers from GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU) are appealing for witnesses to the collision or anybody with footage of the incident to come forward.

Anyone with any information, CCTV, or dashcam footage is asked to contact police on 0161 856 4741 quoting log number 299 of 01/07/24.
