Bolton crash: Man, 34, killed in horror accident leaving 5 hurt including two children

A man has died in a horror crash which left five others injured, including two children.

The smash happened at a junction in Farnworth, Bolton, at just before 11pm Tuesday night, the Manchester Evening News reports.

The 34-year-old driver of a Fiat 500, one of the two vehicles involved in the crash, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Five others, aged between seven and 28, were treated for minor injures.

A witness said one of the cars ended up ‘stuck’ in a wall, with pictures showing loose bricks at the scene.

Police said the black Fiat and a silver Vauxhall Insignia collided with each other at the junction of Long Causeway and Albert Road.

A spokesperson for the North West Ambulance Service said two children were taken to hospital, alongside three adults.

Long Causeway was cordoned off by police last night and into the early hours of this morning as investigation work was carried out at the scene.

Pictures taken at the junction this morning showed a wall that had been badly damaged.

A traffic light also appeared to have been damaged in the crash.

A nearby resident, who wanted to remain anonymous, told the M.E.N : “I heard the bang from my house and just ran down, it was really loud.

“There were two cars involved and loads of cars around them.

“It looked really bad, some people were trying to help the people in the cars.

“There was a car stuck in the wall and another car in the junction.”

Detectives are now appealing for anyone who witnessed the crash to come forward.

Police Constable Andrew Nicholson, of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Sadly a man has lost his life in this collision and our thoughts remain with his loved ones at this difficult time.

“This incident happened at a busy junction and we are hopeful that there are a number of people who may have witnessed this collision and have dash cam footage of the incident or either of the cars leading up to it.

“If you have any information at all please do not hesitate to contact police.”

A spokesperson for NWAS said: “Multiple resources went to Albert Road following reports of RTC on Albert Road, Farnworth, including four ambulances and an advanced paramedic.

“We received the 999. call at 22.54. We have taken two children and three adults to hospital.”
