A horrific car smash that took two men’s lives in Whalley Range has taken its third victim.
On Wednesday 27 April 2016, just after 3am Greater Manchester Police (GMP) observed a white Audi S5 driving at high speed on Wilbraham Road.
Police officers began to pursue the vehicle.
A short time later, the Audi collided with two parked cars and a street sign on Wilbraham Road, close to Whalley Range High School for girls.
Two men, aged 20 and 24, were sadly pronounced dead at the scene.
A third man, 21, who was taken to hospital with severe injuries, tragically died the following day.
A 17-year-old boy who was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving has been bailed until 11 June 2016 pending further enquiries.
A 19-year-old, who remains in hospital, was also arrested on suspicion of the same offence, but has since been de-arrested and is still being treated for his injuries.
Police are continuing to appeal for witnesses to the incident.
Police Constable Paul Joynson of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “Our condolences remain with their families at this very difficult time and we have specially trained officers providing them with support”.
