Police are appealing for witnesses after a teenage boy was killed following a collision in Salford.

At around 8.10pm on Saturday 22 September 2012 a 14-year-old boy was crossing the East Lancs Road near to Eccles Road when a black Vauxhall Vectra collided with him.

The Vectra was travelling towards Manchester.  A short time later the Vectra swerved and collided with a black Volkswagen Golf.

The boy was taken to hospital but sadly died from his injuries.  Both drivers were treated for minor injuries.

Police Sergeant Lee Westhead from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Our sympathies are with the boys family at this tragic time as they try to come to terms with the loss of their loved one.

“A team of specialist officers are investigating the cause of the collision and the sequence of events that led up to it.

“It is really important that anyone who saw the collision or who has any information whatsoever comes forward as soon as possible.

“I am aware some of the witnesses will be a similar age to the victim and want to reassure them that they will be looked after.

“Specialist officers are providing support to the boy’s family.”

A 24-year-old man was arrested for causing death by dangerous driving, but was de-arrested a short time later following enquiries at the scene.

Anyone with information should phone the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 0161 856 4742.
