Officers have launched an investigation and arrested an 18-year old man on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving after another 18 year man passed away from serious injuries this morning (12 August 2023).
At around 5am this morning, officers out on patrol found a man with severe injuries on Booth Road in Altrincham.
The 18-year-old was in a critical condition and despite the best efforts of emergency services, he tragically passed away at the scene as a result of his injuries.
Enquiries revealed that the victim climbed onto the bonnet of a vehicle – a grey Ford Ka – and he was driven across the junction of Dunham Road onto Booth Road. He fell from the bonnet and tragically sustained fatal injuries.
The driver of the vehicle did not remain at the scene.
Officers are now appealing to anyone who has any information that could assist the investigation to get in touch. GMP is also keen to hear from anyone who may have relevant footage – including CCTV, mobile or dashcam.
