At 2.05am on Sunday 16 July 2017, officers were called to reports of a collision on the M61 southbound in Swinton, at its link with the A580 (East Lancashire Road).
A Volkswagen Passat was travelling along the M61 when it was involved in a collision with a pedestrian. Just seconds later, a Toyota Avensis was also involved in a collision with the pedestrian.
Sadly, the pedestrian, a man, was pronounced dead at the scene. Officers have been carrying out extensive enquires to identify him. And have now released the following description in the hope that someone recognises him.
He is described as white, aged between 30 and 50, of slim build and around 5’8”. He has short, neatly cut brown hair receding slightly at the temple. He was wearing black adidas tracksuit bottoms with three white stripes down the leg and a distinctive khaki green t-shirt with a large graphic of a woman sat in a car on the front.
The tips of his left index finger, middle finger and little finger are missing which police are hoping will be a distinctive feature that can help to identify him.
Sergeant Orr of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “We have done everything we can to try and identify this man who sadly hasn’t been reported missing. “We have quite a detailed description of him which we hope someone might recognise, whether it’s a friend or a loved one.
