A woman in her 60s has been killed in a hit-and-run crash.

She is the fourth person to have died on Greater Manchester’s roads this weekend.

A schoolgirl, two men, and a woman in her 30s all died in separate incidents, the Manchester Evening News reports.

A 75-year-old woman and another child have been left in hospital after other crashes in the area.

A woman was killed in the crash, which took place on Edenfield Road in Norden, Rochdale, at shortly before 5pm on Sunday.

The victim, who has not been named, was pronounced dead at the scene, Greater Manchester Police said.

The car involved – believed to be a grey Mercedes or an Audi – ‘failed to stop at the scene’, the force added, and is likely to have sustained significant damage.

No arrests have been made and an investigation to locate the car and driver is underway.

Police, fire crews and paramedics were all scrambled to the A580 Edenfield Road – and have remained at the scene.

Motorists are being urged to avoid the area.

Edenfield Road has been closed in both directions as a result, between Martins Field and Bagslate Moor Road.

The collision happened near to the Mezbaan Restaurant.

In a post on Facebook, the restaurant said it has closed on police advice – and described a ‘major incident’.

The restaurant said: “Due to a major incident outside our restaurant we are forced to close the restaurant today on advice from the police.”

In a statement, Greater Manchester Police said: “Shortly before 5pm today, police were called to reports of a collision between a car and a pedestrian on Edenfield Road, Rochdale.

“The car – believed to be a grey Mercedes or Audi – failed to stop at the scene.
