    A 38-year-old woman pedestrian has died after being hit by a Mercedes G-Wagon worth £200,000 last night.

    The woman was struck by the G63 on a busy road in the Bradford area of Manchester just after 9pm and taken to hospital but could not be saved. Police said they were investigating the incident but no arrests had been made.

    The driver, whose identity is not known, appeared to have left a pair of Beats by Dre headphones worth up to £300 on top of the car after the crash, which happened a short walk away from Manchester City FC’s Etihad Stadium.

    The purple 4×4, a high-performance car widely used by celebrities and footballers, was later seen in a bus stop some distance from where the initial collision took place at the junction of Alan Turing Way and Ashton Old Road.

    One witness, self-employed businessman Hafiz Parvaiz, 34, said: ‘I went out and saw a police officer and then a paramedic tending to the woman on the floor. They were giving her CPR. It’s terribly sad.’

    The father-of-two added: ‘There was a lot of debris in the road. Everyone was shocked by what happened.’

    Another local resident Kyle Brown, 23, said: ‘It was terrible. I saw the woman in the road with a paramedic trying to save her. She seemed to be on her own. Everyone looked very upset. It’s a terrible waste of life.’

    Several police vehicles were stationed around a cordon – and two other vehicles were inside the cordon, but it is not thought that they were involved in the initial impact. The road was shut into the early hours of this morning.

    Police investigators were called to the scene of the crash and were seen placing evidence markers next to pieces of debris on the road. Medical debris was also seen scattered across the junction where the incident happened.

    Inspector Darren Hancock, of Greater Manchester Police’s serious collision investigation unit, said: ‘This is a tragic incident in which a woman has very sadly lost her life. Our thoughts are with her loved ones at this difficult time.

    ‘This collision happened on a busy road and I am hopeful that there are a number of witnesses who will have seen the collision and may have dashcam footage.

    The road was shut into the early hours of this morning and a series of diversions were set up by police overnight 

    ‘If you were on this road at the time and saw the car in the lead up to the collision or have any dashcam footage, please get in touch with police as soon as possible.’

    A series of diversions were set up, and a Transport for Greater Manchester spokesman tweeted last night: ‘UPDATE: A635 Ashton Old Road / A6010 Pottery Lane. A police cordon has now closed most of the junction.

    ‘Traffic can still use Pottery Lane NB to turn left onto AOR towards the City. However, please avoid the area, delays on surrounding roads expected.’ 

    Alan Turing Way was known as the A6010 until 1994 when it was renamed to honour the wartime codebreaker and computer pioneer, who conducted much of his ground-breaking work at the University of Manchester.

    Anyone with information should contact the serious collision investigation unit on 0161 856 4741, quoting incident number 2990 of 25/10/21. Reports can also be made anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111
