POLICE have arrested a second man after a 12-year-old boy was killed in a horror crash on the M62.
The victim was struck by a car while walking along the M62 near Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire, at around 9.50pm on Saturday night.
A 47-year-old man from Bolton was today arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
It comes after the arrest of a 36-year-old man on suspicion of causing or allowing the death of a child. He remains in custody.
The boy is understood to have been walking with a man along the eastbound carriageway of the motorway between junctions 25 and 26 following an earlier crash involving an Audi Q5 on the slip road to Hartshead services.
The child was then struck by a Toyota C-HR, which failed to stop at the scene.
