Man arrested following collision between a car and pedestrian in Rochdale.

At around 8pm on Friday 29th November 2019, police were called to reports that a car had collided with a pedestrian on Boundary Street in Rochdale.
 
The pedestrian, a 25-year-old man, suffered a serious head injury. 

He was taken to hospital where he remains in a life-threatening condition.
 
The car, which was originally believed to be a Mercedes C Class – is now believed to be a black Volkswagen Golf that was travelling towards Tweedale Street and failed to stop at the scene.
 
A 23-year old man from Rochdale, has been arrested today (Saturday 30 November 2019) on suspicion of serious injury by dangerous driving and failure to stop following a collision.
 
Sergeant Brian Orr, of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said, “A man has been left fighting for his life as a result of this collision and our thoughts remain with him and his family as he receives treatment.
 
“I am particularly interested in speaking with anyone that saw a black Golf in the area last night or anyone with dash-cam footage. I would urge anyone with any information that could assist our enquiries to get in touch.”
