IPCC investigation after a man suffers serious injuries in Greater Manchester

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is appealing for witnesses following serious injuries to a man hit by a vehicle on the M60 in Greater Manchester over the bank holiday weekend.

The 20-year-old suffered head injuries and remains in hospital at this time. It is thought he was walking along Rochdale Road in Blackley heading towards Middleton shortly before 4pm on Sunday 28 May. He then attempted to cross the M60, close to Junction 20, when he was struck by the vehicle.

The IPCC understands the man had been in contact with two Greater Manchester Police (GMP) officers before the incident, and has begun an independent investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the IPCC via the incident line 0800 029 4689 or via email rochdaleroadincident@ipcc.gsi.gov.uk(link sends e-mail)

An IPCC spokesperson said: “This incident happened in a busy area of Manchester during a time when many people would have been out and about enjoying the bank holiday weekend. As such we are hoping that someone may have seen the incident and the events prior to the collision, and would urge anyone with information to come forward.”
