Road closed in Shevington due to a crash in which a young woman was killed.
Here is an appeal from the police...
Police are appealing for witnesses after a woman tragically died in a collision in Wigan.
Shortly before 2.20am on Saturday 13th January 2018 police were called to Gathurst Road in Wigan to reports of a collision.
Officers attended and established a blue Ford Fiesta had collided with a wall.
Fire and Ambulance services attended and a man in his 30’s and a 26-year-old woman were taken to hospital.
The woman sadly died in hospital as a result of her injuries.
The man is in a serious but not life-threatening condition.
Sergeant Jon McColl from GMP's Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “My thoughts are with the woman’s family, this is a tragic incident and I can’t imagine what they are going through.
“Our specialist officers are with the woman’s family and will be supporting them through this extremely difficult time.
“We are now investigating the circumstances which lead to the collision, so we are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the collision or have seen the blue Ford Fiesta in the area before, to contact police.
“We would especially be grateful for anyone with any CCTV or dash-cam footage to get in touch.”
Anyone with any information is asked to call police on 0161 856 4741 alternatively call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
While police investigations continue, there is no access through the scene from either direction from the Blue Elephant to Ackurst Lane, including Gathurst Train station.
