Woman fighting for life following collision in Wythenshawe

Police are appealing for witnesses to a collision in Wythenshawe which left a 63-year-old woman fighting for her life in hospital.

At around 4pm on Sunday 21st June 2015, the 63-year-old woman and her 38-year-old son were walking along Wythenshawe Road, near to the junction with The Pines when a car mounted the grass verge nearby. 

After ploughing through a street sign, the car collided with both pedestrians. 

The 63-year-old woman suffered two broken legs and internal bleeding and was subsequently taken to Wythenshawe Hospital, where she remains in a critical condition. 

The 38-year-old man escaped with minor injuries, while the driver of the car was left uninjured. 

Sergeant Orr, of Greater Manchester Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “We are still investigating as to exactly how this car ended up leaving the road and causing such terrible injuries. 

“The car will be mechanically examined, but perhaps the best way to ascertain what occurred will be witness accounts received from the public.

“That is why it is so important for anyone who may have witnessed this collision to come forward and tell officers what they saw.” 

Anyone with information should call the SCIU on 0161 856 4742 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
