Police arrest man after car smash
A MAN has been arrested after a BMW smashed into a bus stop in during a police pursuit.
The crash took place near McDonald’s on the A6 London Road in Hazel Grove, Stockport.
It happened after Cheshire Police began pursuing a black BMW 630i in Poynton when the driver failed to stop.
The chase led into Hazel Grove, where the BMW lost control and crashed into a bus shelter.
Pictures of the incident showed a badly damaged bus shelter and BMW.
Police at the scene say no one was injured and there was no one at the bus stop at the time – just after noon on Saturday.
Gas engineers were also called after officers could smell gas after arriving and McDonald’s was closed.
Paul Shallcross, who runs Shallcross Vehicle Solutions on London Road, told the M.E.N: “I heard all these sirens and went to take a look.
“They’ve cordoned off the whole road for quite a distance and there’s fire engines and ambulances there.”
Police are now appealing for dashcam footage of the incident.
