A resident, who asked to remain anonymous, said they had heard the incident but had not realised the extent of the collision.

She said: "I was sat watching TV and I did hear a bang and some shouting.

"I didn't think anything of it until I started to see blue lights outside my house.

"I looked out and there was a guy lying on the road and there were lots of people around him."

She added: "People come flying around this road. What are they waiting for? How much has to happen before anything is done about this road?"

A number of people in the area voiced concerns over speeding on Moss Bank Way.

One mother said: "It's really bad here, people speed up and down all the time. We need a traffic light or something.

"It's to the point where you don't want to let your kids out."
