Hero biker who rescued two women from A666 horror crash
6:00am Thursday 10th October 2013 in News
A QUICK-THINKING motorcyclist helped rescue two women hurt in a horror smash.
Security guard Jordan Luke was on his way home from work when he arrived at the A666 crash just seconds after it happened.
Witnesses had reported seeing two cars “racing” at high speeds along the busy dual carriageway just before the smash.
A silver Ford Fiesta had overturned on to its roof after being struck by a white Audi S3 on Saturday at about 1pm, close to the junction of Blackbank Street and Blackburn Road.
The Fiesta was not involved in the alleged racing.
Mr Luke, aged 20, a security guard at Tesco Extra in Salford, parked his motorbike in the middle of the northbound carriageway to stop other drivers getting caught up in the carnage.
He said: “I was driving at the 50mph speed limit and I saw an Audi and Honda Civic racing. They must have been going at 100mph.
“They were whizzing in and out of traffic like there was no tomorrow then the crash happened.
“I heard screaming from the Fiesta and I pulled the door open on the passenger side and two women were inside. The driver was pregnant. I helped pull them both out. I just wanted to make sure they were both okay. They were very shaken up and the pregnant woman was very upset.”
He said both of the women had blood on their hands, which he believes was from the glass windscreen.
A taxi driver is believed to have called the emergency services.
Mr Luke, from Horwich, said the Honda Civic did not stop at the scene but a driver got out of the Audi car.
A helicopter flew overhead but did not stop.
The A666 outbound was closed for almost four and a half hours while the pregnant woman, thought to be in her 30s and from Prestwich, and the other woman were rescued and the silver car recovered.
A police spokesman confirmed there are no health concerns about the woman and the unborn baby.
The incident was reported to police as happened near to the town centre.
He said the cars had been recovered and closures had been lifted by 5.30pm. Inquires are ongoing.
Anyone with information are asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
