Appeal after fatal collision

Wednesday, December 13, 2023

We are appealing for witnesses after a man sadly died in a collision on the M61.

We were called at about 10pm after a pedestrian was involved in a collision with a DAF truck on the carriageway close to Rivington Services on the northbound stretch of the motorway.

The pedestrian, a man in his 40s, died at the scene. Our thoughts are with his loved ones at this time.

We are appealing to anyone who saw the collision itself or a man on the hard shoulder at around that time to get in touch. We are also keen to hear from anyone who may have any dashcam footage.

If you can help, please call us on 101 quoting log 1417 of Tuesday, December 12.
