1crashA mum and her young daughter have been left seriously injured after a car veered off the road and smashed into a bus shelter. The driver and three passengers fled from their blue Mazda Coupe after the crash on Friday and police have launched an investigation to trace them.

The 29-year-old woman is being treated in hospital for leg and pelvic fractures. The girl, 11, was left with leg fractures as well as a laceration to her liver after the collision on Glodwick Road in Oldham.

Pictures from the scene show the smashed-up vehicle with warped metal from the bus shelter strewn across the pavement. Tyre tracks in the snow appear to reveal how the vehicle came off the road and could prove a vital clue for detectives as they investigate the incident.

Greater Manchester Police inspector Arron Cooper said: ‚ÄúSadly, as a result of this incident, a woman and a girl have been left with serious injuries. I want to stress the importance that anyone who witnessed the collision should contact us as soon as possible.”
