A green Vauxhall Astra was suspected as having caught on fire after a collision with a van and two cars on Trinity Way this morning, this however was a false alarm as it was not on fire when fire crews arrived on scene.
Fortunately none of the occupants of the vehicles were seriously injured and the driver of the Astra had been able to self rescue himself.
Police have so far made no arrests.
There were considerable delays in the area during the incident but these have now cleared and the road reopened to traffic.
A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said:
"Police were called to a report of collision on Trinity Way, Salford, shortly before 8pm on July 12, 2020.
"The collision involved a green Vauxhall Astra, a van and a grey Mercedes.
"No reports of injuries."
