A teenage boy has died after being involved in a police chase that ended in a horror crash in the early hours of Friday (November 13).
The Toyota ploughed into a wall on Hall Moss Lane in Bramhall just before 4am, reports the Manchester Evening News.
It was being followed by officers from Cheshire Police at the time.
The 16-year-old driver and male passenger were taken to hospital from the scene with serious injuries.
The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) – which is investigating the incident – has now confirmed that the driver has died.
He passed away in hospital on Saturday, a spokesperson said.
An IOPC spokesperson said: “We have begun an investigation after a 16-year-old boy died in a collision following a pursuit involving Cheshire Police on Friday 13 November.
“We understand that at around 4am a Toyota car lost control and hit a wall in Hall Moss Lane, Bramhall, Stockport. The driver died in hospital on Saturday and a passenger was taken to hospital with serious injuries.
“After we were notified by police, we sent investigators to the scene of the collision and to the police post incident procedure to begin gathering information.

“Our thoughts are with the boy’s family and friends at this difficult time.”
The boy's family and friends have covered the scene of the collision with floral tributes and balloons.
At least 100 mourners blocked the road last night (Monday) while fireworks were let off at the scene.
A witness who drove past the scene at about 5.40pm said: "It was madness. I couldn't believe what I was seeing.
"I couldn't get through, there were so many people blocking the road and there were streams of people walking up to it and on the edges.
"Cars were double parked all the way to the end of the road."
