Man dies after smashing into BMW during early morning police chase


A MAN has today died following an early morning police chase.

Cops were on patrol when a red Volkswagen Golf failed to stop for them at 12.50am today in Hyde, Greater Manchester.

Officers then pursued the vehicle but lost sight of it and found it later this morning.

It had been involved in a collision with an oncoming blue BMW and then smashed into a building.

The driver of the Golf died at the scene while the driver and passenger of the BMW were taken to hospital for treatment to their non-life threatening injuries.

Superintendent Chris Allsop said: “The family of the man who sadly lost his life have been informed and are being supported by family liaison officers.

“The incident has been referred to the Independent Office for Police Conduct by GMP’s Professional Standards Branch in line with normal policy.

“The IOPC are independently investigating the circumstances of this incident and GMP will fully support this investigation.

“The scene will remain in place while the investigation remains ongoing.”
