A teenage cyclist was taken to hospital with 'life-changing' injuries after a crash with multiple vehicles in Carrington.

The emergency services were called to Manchester Road last night (April 25).

A teenage cyclist, a 13-year-old boy, was taken to hospital with 'life-changing injuries' by North West Ambulance Service.

He was involved in a crash with multiple vehicles, according to police, with two of the drivers arrested on the scene on suspicion of drink-related and drug-related driving offences. An investigation was started into the incident with an appeal for CCTV footage and dashcam footage from the public.

Inspector Darren Hancock, of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: "This was an horrific accident that has left a 13-year-old boy with potentially life-changing injuries. We send out thoughts to him and his family, and our specialist officers continue to support them.

"We have arrested two people in relation to this accident, but our investigations are still ongoing. We would encourage anyone who was in the area of Manchester Road in Carrington at approximately 9pm last night and who may have captured the vehicles on dashcam footage, to come forwards."
