A 15-year-old boy on an electric bike has died after colliding with a parked ambulance after being chased by police.
An extensive rescue operation was launched after the incident.
Police officers and paramedics were photographed along Langworthy Road on Thursday afternoon (June 8) following the fatal incident.
Police blocked the road for several hours while accident investigators searched the scene for evidence.
An ambulance with a smashed windshield could be seen inside the cordon.
A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said: “At around 2pm today (08/06/2023) GMP traffic officers began following a boy riding an electric bike down Fitzwarren Street in Salford to Lower Seedley Road.” Bollards prevented the police vehicle from continuing to follow the e-bike.
“Shortly after, there was a traffic accident between the e-bike and an ambulance on Langworthy Road.
“Unfortunately, the 15-year-old boy who rode the e-bike passed away.”
“In accordance with normal procedure, the incident has been referred to the IOPC, which is now leading the investigation.
“A cordon remains in place on Langworthy Road.”
“Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the boy who tragically passed away.”
