Three seriously injured after seven car Cheadle smash


Three men have been seriously injured in a collision involving seven vehicles in Cheadle.

Shortly before 7.30pm on Monday 18 January 2016 a grey BMW 130 travelling on the southbound carriageway of the A34 Kingsway in Cheadle, Stockport, was in collision with two other vehicles, a Renault Megane and a Toyota Verso, travelling in the same direction.

The BMW and the Toyota crossed over the central reservation and the BMW was in collision with two further vehicles, a Honda Civic and a Ford Fiesta, which were travelling along the northbound carriageway. The Toyota collided with a Peugeot 206 which was parked and unattended pushing it across the pavement and colliding with a Vauxhall Astra which was also parked and unattended.

Three men in the BMW have been taken to hospital. A 24-year-old man suffered a head injury, a 31-year-old man suffered a bleed on the brain, kidney damage and a fractured spine and a 29-year-old man suffered a fractured jaw and chest injuries. All three remain in hospital.

Two of the men, 24 and 29, have been arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.
