An unidentified man was decapitated after being hit by a heavy goods vehicle on Wellington Road South in Stockport. The man, who police have not identified, was pronounced dead at the scene of the road-traffic accident, which occurred just before 3 p.m. on Nov. 17.
The accident happened near the Longshut Lane junction and the A6, forcing police to close the road in both directions. A man who was working in a nearby office said that there was often confusion with the street's bus lanes and that he suspected that an accident might happen soon. He said that his office became aware that there had been an incident when the traffic stopped passing.
