A motorist has died following a road traffic collision in Diggle.

Shortly after midday on Wednesday 2 November 2011, police were called to Huddersfield Road, Saddleworth, following reports of a collision.

Officers who attended the scene discovered a Nissan Micra had collided with some railings close to a notorious bend on the A62.

It is believed that the motorist got out of his car and was hit by another vehicle, a Volkswagen Passat.

The man was taken to hospital but was pronounced dead a short time later.

Part of Huddersfield Road was closed in both directions while emergency services dealt with the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0161 856 8473, or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
