A TEENAGE girl has died in a horror crash in Manchester – while an 18-year-old man is fighting for his life.
The 17-year-old girl was a front-seat passenger in a white Mercedes which ploughed into a railway bridge.
Police, firefighters and paramedics rushed to the scene in Mancunian Way at 11.45pm and pulled the casualties from the wreckage.
All three were taken to hospital.
However, despite the efforts of the emergency services and medics, the girl couldn’t be saved.
The 18-year-old, a rear-seat passenger, is in a critical condition.
The male driver, 23, suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries.
No arrests have been made and enquiries continue.
Photos from the scene show the huge emergency response.
The car’s bonnet was shorn off, while the bonnet has peeled up and the windscreen has shattered.
The major route, part of inner ring road, is shut eastbound between between London Road and Fairfield Street.
Greater Manchester Police said today: “Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the young woman that has died.
“Anyone with information or dashcam footage should call police on 0161 856 4741 quoting incident 3221 of 10/01/2022.”
