[A] woman has died following a collision in Trafford.

At 9.50pm yesterday evening, Thursday 31 May, police were called to Europa Way, Trafford Park to reports that a car had collided with a number of pedestrians.

Emergency services attended and seven people injured in the collision were taken to hospital.

This afternoon (Friday 1 June 2016) a 20-year-old woman sadly died.

Officers from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit established that the car failed to stop at the scene.

A blue BMW 330D has been recovered from Salford and is being forensically examined.

A 21-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and failing to stop after a collision. He remains in police custody for questioning.

A 26-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

There is no evidence to suggest that this is terrorism related at this stage.

GMP’s Chief Superintendent Wayne Miller, said: “Firstly, my thoughts are with the family of the woman who has tragically died this afternoon. All those who knew her will understandably be completely heartbroken and our specially trained officers are doing everything they can to support her family through this horrendous time.

“We currently have two men in custody who will continue to be questioned whilst our officers continue with their enquiries.

“At the time of the collision there was a car meet event in the area which approximately 60 cars attended. I believe there will be people with video or dash-cam footage of the incident or beforehand.

“Please, if you have anything which could help give these families the truth they deserve then please contact us.

“We will continue to patrol the area and work with Trafford Council to address any concerns.”
