An investigation has been launched after the rider of a motorbike was left with life-changing injuries following a collision with a car in Heywood on Friday morning (24th May).

It was at around 6.05am when a silver Toyota Avensis was travelling along Pilsworth Road.

When the vehicle turned right into the entrance of Heywood Distribution Centre, it collided with white Honda motorcycle.

The motorcyclist, a man in his 30s, was taken to hospital with life-changing injuries, where he remains receiving treatment.

Police are appealing for anyone with information or dash-cam footage to come forward.

Police Constable Andrew Page of Greater Manchester Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “This was a serious collision that has left a man with life-changing injuries and our thoughts remain with him and his family as he continues to recover in hospital.

“This collision occurred on a main road and while it was relatively early in the morning, we believe there may be a number of people who saw the vehicles prior to the incident.

“If you have any information or dash cam footage that can assist us, please get in touch as soon as possible.”

Information can be left with GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 0161 856 4741 or via the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
