Police are appealing for witnesses to a horror crash in Rochdale to come forward, after a man has been left fighting for his life.

The two vehicles collided in Milnrow on Sunday evening, on Wildhouse Lane.

It’s thought that a Nissan Micra travelling northbound collided with a BMW One Series that was heading in the opposite direction.

The BMW driver and passenger sustained minor injuries in the head-on crash, but the driver of the Nissan remains in a life-threatening condition in hospital.

Police are now investigating the horror smash and looking for dashcam footage and eye witnesses.


Anyone who saw anything from the incident at around 7.45pm on Sunday 3 March, or anything from the moments leading up to the collision, should contact GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU).
