Two dead in Salford car crash

    By Lauren Grice

    Two people have died in Salford after crashing into eight vehicles in a stolen car.

    Greater Manchester Police were called to Boscombe Gardens in Farnworth  on Thursday (February 7th) following reports of a burglary.

    A red Audi was stolen during the crime and was then spotted by a police car on the nearby A580 East Lancashire Road.

    Officers attempted to pursue but lost sight of the vehicle, which was later found to have ploughed into several parked cars on Leigh Road in Boothstown.

    A number of vehicles caught fire following the incident and two people were pronounced dead at the scene, while fire fighters attempted to bring the blaze under control.

    Assistant Chief Constable Zoe Sheard was unwilling to speculate on the fatal collision, noting that the investigation was still in its early stages.

    “I want to assure everyone that a thorough investigation will take place into the circumstances surrounding the incident and we will continue to keep the community informed with any developments,” she said.

    Constable Sheard went on to note that there would be a heavy police area in the coming days and appealed to members of the public to come forward with information about the incident by calling officers on 101.

    A number of properties on Leigh Road were damaged by the collision, although no other casualties were reported.
