Police have launched an appeal for more information after a 60-year-old motorcyclist died in a horror crash on Albion Way. 

At around 6.10pm on Saturday (June 22) police attended a collision that had occurred on Albion Way between Liverpool Road and Salford Crescent.

The collision involved a Green Kawasaki motorcycle that had been travelling in tandem with another motorcycle in the direction of Salford Crescent before apparently colliding with the central reservation.

Emergency services attended but sadly, despite their best efforts, a 60-year-old man sustained significant injuries and died at the scene.

A male, aged 38, has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. He remains in custody for questioning.

Officers from GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU) are appealing for witnesses to the collision or anybody with footage of the incident to come forward.

Sergeant Matthew Waggett, from GMP’s SCIU, said: “Our thoughts are with the family of the man who sadly lost his life in this collision.  We also thank those who stopped at the scene to help and provide care to the victim.

“The investigation is in the very early stages and whilst we seek to understand the exact cause of the collision, we ask that anybody who saw the incident or may have captured the motorcycles in the locality around this time to come forward and help us understand what occurred.”

Anyone with any information, CCTV, or dashcam footage is asked to contact police on 0161 856 4741 quoting log number 2586 of Saturday’s date (22/6/24).
