Police are investigating a fail to stop collision that has left a 26-year-old man fighting for life in hospital.

Around 10.20 pm on Monday 10 March 2014, the victim was crossing Wilbraham Road near to the Spread Eagle pub when he was struck by a black Porsche Panamera registration number MX10 OBK.

The driver of the Porsche did not stop and left the victim critically injured in the road.

The Porsche has since been recovered after being found burned out and abandoned on Brookburn Road, Chorlton.

Investigating Officer, Sergeant Lee Westhead said, “A dedicated team of specialist officers are now investigating this collision.

The driver knows who they are and what they have done, they should also know that we will find them no matter how long it takes and we will bring them to account.

I will appeal directly to the driver and say come and speak to the Police now on your terms before we come knocking on your door. I will also appeal to the family and friends of the driver.

Do not protect this person, we will investigate and take action against anyone who does. This is no time for misplaced loyalty, a young man is fighting for his life.

Anyone who knows the identity of the driver, witnessed the collision or has any information, should contact the Police immediately on 01618564741 or the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
