The Ford Focus literally fell apart in two parts under the impact of a giant speed hit at the Whitworth bus stop near Rochdale. Witnesses say that the driver and the passenger have managed to get out of the vehicle and escape the accident site.
The accident happened on a Sunday evening – driving at a speed of about 70 miles per hour. The Ford Focus hit the bus stop, which was extremely unattainable. The impact was so great that the car broke up in half.
Witnesses of the incident said that both the driver and the passenger “miracle” got out of the vehicle and fled the scene. The police who intervened in the case began to search the area with a helicopter.
It is reported that the “refugees” are 17 or 18 years old. The street where the accident occurred was closed in both directions for 6 hours. One of the locals, 45-year-old Andi Jackson, said it was a miracle that no one was at the bus stop at that time.
In an interview for the Manchester Evening News the witness said: “I heard a huge bang. I went to see what happened on the road and saw lots of lights and car parts scattered all over.The car was driving along Market Street about 70 or 80 miles per hour. The driver had to lose control of him and wiped almost the van.
He crashed into a bus stop and the entire rear of the car was on the other side of the road.Someone who was in the street told me that two teens had fled the car. It’s amazing that they managed to get out of it at all. They must have been injured. You can not shake the car without getting hurt yourself. Well, there was no one at the bus stop.
A spokesman for Lancashire Police confirmed that the service was summoned to the scene of the accident around noon on Sunday: “Ford Focus hit the wall and then at the bus stop near Birches Hotel on Market Street. The driver of the car escaped from it a moment later. Officers searched the area for a driver and his passenger, but failed to locate them. No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing. Please witness the incident to report to the police. “
