Motorist recovering in hospital after Altrincham bus crash

An 18-year-old man had been left hospitalised and in a critical condition is expected to make a full recovery after bus collision in Altrincham last night.

The incident occurred on Oldfield Road at about 9.45pm after his Vauxhall Corsa smashed into the single-decker bus, leaving him with severe injuries.

Firefighters were on hand to rescue the driver as they used cutting gear to free the driver and another man from the wreckage.

Two female passengers managed to remove themselves from the vehicle before emergency crews arrived.

All four were taken to hospital after being treated at the scene by paramedics while an emergency doctor was also on hand.

Following treatment, the teenager is no longer in a critical condition and is now recovering in hospital from a fractured hip and damaged ligaments to his back.

He is expected to make a full recovery.

Police are appealing to witnesses and anyone with information is asked to call officers on 0161 856 7471.
