UK: Woman died after falling out of car and running herself over, police believe

A woman who died after a collision with a Ford Fiesta may have run herself over, police believe.

Officers were called to Clarence Street, Leigh, Greater Manchester, at around 11.30am on Tuesday to reports of a woman in her late 60s being seriously injured in a crash. She was taken to hospital but died hours later.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) are investigating and said there is a “suggestion that the woman was driving the car herself before she lost control of the vehicle and fell out”.

The car is believed to have subsequently reversed over her.

Sergeant Andrew Page, from GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “This incident appears to have come as a result of an incredibly tragic set of circumstances and I want to extend my deepest condolences to the loved ones of the woman who passed away.

“We are working to establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident and are appealing to anyone who may have information that can assist us to please get in touch.”
