The Nissan driver was trapped inside his vehicle and he was later removed by firefighters.

He was taken to Salford Royal Hospital with injuries that police described as "serious and life-changing".

No-one else was injured in the incident.

Part of Newton Road was closed while emergency services dealt with the scene.

Police are appealing for witnesses. Anyone with information can call them on 0161 8564742.
