Emily Sergeant Emily Sergeant - 4th June 2024

An urgent appeal has been issued after a man has died following a collision with several stationary cars on a quiet residential street.

The appeal comes after officers from Greater Manchester Police (GMP) were called to reports of a road traffic collision between three cars on Greenacres Road in Oldham at around 11:41pm last Sunday night (2 June).

According to GMP, it’s believed that a car collided into two stationary cars, which caused it to overturn.

Despite the best efforts of all emergency services involved, when police arrived at the scene, a man in his 20s was tragically pronounced dead.

Since the incident occurred, a police investigation is now underway, and two men – who are also in their 20s – have been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, GMP has confirmed, and at present, they remain in police custody for questioning.


Detective Constable Alex Giblin, from GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said officers are “working tirelessly” to get to the bottom on what happened.

Appealing to the public for information, footage, and witnesses to the incident, DC Giblin commented: “This is a tragic incident where a young man has lost his life, and our thoughts remain with his family and loved ones.


“They will be supported by specially trained officers at this distressing time. We are working tirelessly to get answers for them, but I urge anyone who has any information, or who may have witnessed the incident to please come forward and help with our enquiries.
