Seven pedestrians hurt in Harpurhey supermarket car park collision

Officers are appealing for witnesses after a multiple car collision in Harpurhey.

Shortly before 3.30pm today (Monday 16 April 2018), police were called to a supermarket car park to reports of a collision.

A Kia Venga had been involved in a collision with two cars and a number of pedestrians.

Seven pedestrians were taken to hospital for treatment where they remain and an 80-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving. He remains in custody for questioning.

Enquiries into the full circumstances around the incident are ongoing and witnesses are encouraged to come forward.

Police Sergeant Brian Orr of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “While we have seven injured people receiving treatment and a man in custody, our enquiries continue to find out exactly what has happened.

“Our investigations at the scene will continue for some time and there will be disruption to people in the local area but we need to make sure we get every piece of evidence possible to build a full picture of the circumstances.

“It’s quite a busy area so if anyone saw anything but has not yet been in contact with us, please make sure that’s the next thing you do.”

Anyone with information should contact GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 0161 856 4741 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
