A MAN has died more than a month after being hit by a car just outside Bolton town centre.

Harold Waring, aged 57, was hit by a black VW Golf as he crossed Topp Way, at the junction with St Georges Road, at 8pm on November 12.

Mr Waring suffered a fractured pelvis and was discharged from hospital on November 29, but he was taken ill on December 29 and died in hospital the same day.

Now police are appealing for information.

PC Peter Cunningham, from the police's serious collision investigation unit, said: “Although we do not know whether the collision in any way contributed to Mr Waring’s death, we are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the collision on November 12.

“Did you see a black VW Golf driving along Marsden Road, towards Topp Way prior to the incident? If you did, please contact us as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information can phone police on 0161 8564741.

Hopefully this means they revise "crossings" on St Georges Road. I've always said that the whole area up until the Chorley New Road's junction is dangerous, it's not safe for pedestrians at all and hasn't been for as long as I remember.

There's actually no safe way to cross St Georges Road, unless you're at the bottom (on the junction with Marsden Road) or unless you're willing to risk your life at the Vernon St Junction.

The Chorley New Road junction is terrible. From where i used to work on one of the corner offices, you could see people literally crossing the middle of the junction. I was expecting someone to be killed there.
