Porsche hit-and-run death: Chorlton suspect dies
A motorist wanted for causing the death of a man in a hit-and-run in Manchester has died, police have revealed.
Craig Rodger, 25, was hit by a Porsche as he crossed Wilbraham Road in Chorlton, Manchester, in March 2014.
Mohammed Basit Chaudhry, 29, was accused of causing death by dangerous driving but Greater Manchester Police said he died in Dubai last year.
It comes as two men were charged with perverting the course of justice in relation to the case.
The pair, aged 27 and 32, have been bailed to appear at Manchester City Magistrates' Court on 23 March.
The crash, which happened near The Spread Eagle pub, involved a Porsche Panamera car which was later found burnt out half a mile away in Brookburn Road.
Police said they were no longer looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.
