SIX people including three children have been taken to hospital after a road traffic collision in Whitefield.

Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS) received reports of a serious collision on Bury New Road at 9.14pm on Tuesday, April 14, 2015.

The collision involved four vehicles and the bay window of a semi-detached house.

Crew from Whitefield and Broughton fire stations and the Technical Response Unit from Ashton attended and rescued a male driver who was trapped in one of the vehicles.

Station Manager Jon Crawley, who was in charge of the incident, said: “At total of nine people were involved in the incident – six were taken to hospital, including three children, and three were assessed at the scene by paramedics.

“We released one man from one of the vehicles and crew from the Technical Response Unit have shored up the house to make it safe. We are now awaiting a buildings inspector to assess the property.

“The dual carriageway going towards the M60 roundabout at junction 17 remains closed but police have managed to reopen the road northbound towards Bury.”
