Manchester incident: Six injured after vehicle hits people outside Asda

Six people have been seriously injured after a car was reportedly driven into pedestrians at a supermarket in north Manchester, an ambulance service has said.

An 80-year-old man was arrested for dangerous driving following the collision in Harpurhey, Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said.

It added the incident, which involved three vehicles, was not being treated as terrorism-related.

The 80-year-old suspect was among those injured in the crash, according to the Manchester Evening News.

A North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) spokesman said four of those injured were “walking wounded”, while two suffered leg injuries, the local newspaper reported.

The service said in a Twitter post: “Our crews were called to a large-scale incident in Harpurhey, Manchester at 15.25.

“We’ve had six ambulances at the scene along with the air ambulance and three senior clinicians. Six patients are being treated for serious injuries after a collision with a vehicle.”

GMP said officers were called to reports a Kia Venga had been involved in a collision with two cars and several pedestrians at the car park shortly before 3.30pm on 16 April.

Witness Taz McCullough told the Manchester Evening News: “There were people laid on the floor, shopping trolleys, shopping everywhere. There were a few people who couldn’t move.”
