Boy, 15, dies in crash with ambulance after police e-bike pursuit

A 15-year-old boy riding an e-bike has died in a collision with an ambulance after being followed by police in Salford.

Greater Manchester Police said officers began following a boy riding an e-bike at around 2pm today.

Police were forced to break off their chase because of bollards.

But in a statement, the force said a short time later the e-bike and an ambulance collided.

The police added: “The 15-year-old boy riding the e-bike sadly died.”

The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) is now leading an investigation into what happened.

A cordon remains in place on Langworthy Road.

Greater Manchester Police said: “Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the boy who tragically died.”
