Traffic initially built up along Wistaston Road coming over the railway bridge, with cars diverted by officers down Dunwoody Way.
A member of the public who was helping with efforts to divert traffic on Edleston Road said the air ambulance had landed on the car park off nearby Mill Street. One member of the public at the scene said: “I didn’t see the accident but I saw the truck parked on the road. It’s awful, I hope everyone is ok.”
The closure of the crossroads was reportedly still in place as of 7pm on Wednesday (June 9) while police carried out investigation work. Anyone with information can contact Cheshire Police on 101 or via the website quoting IML 1008722.
