Greater Manchester Police said officers were called to reports of two children being hit by a red Land Rover Discovery, in Coleridge Road, Oldham, at about 5pm yesterday.

The 10-year-old girl was taken to hospital with serious injuries but died a short time later.

A second girl was also taken to hospital with ankle and head injuries and remains in a stable condition.

Police added the car hit a lamp post following the crash with the two girls.

A 42-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and driving under the influence.

Sergeant Matthew Waggett said: “Our thoughts are with the little girl’s family at this unimaginably difficult time.

“Whilst we have arrested a man, we are continuing at pace with our investigation as we work to establish the full circumstances of this collision and are asking that anyone who has dashcam footage or any information about the red Land Rover Discovery during the collision or prior to the collision speaks to police.

“This collision happened at a busy time of day and we are hopeful that there are a number of witnesses who can assist police with their inquiries.”

Anyone with information is asked contact police on 0161 856 4741, quoting log number 2185 of December 18.

Alternatively, people can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
