But a man was arrested shortly after, said a police spokesman in Greater Manchester.
Hussain has been arrested and will appear for Wigan and Leigh’s trial tomorrow.
Ms. Wharton was well known in the city for her community service, especially a women’s shelter, and has even created a breakfast club for military veterans.
Her grandmother, who worked with Russell and Russell’s attorneys, was mayor alongside Cllr Martin Donaghy in 2014.
Donaghy paid tribute to the mayor, who also worked at Sainsbury.
She said: “Gay, one of our coaches is a salvage from Sainsbury and has been very reluctant to be mayor.
But I thought no, she was going to be one of my predecessors, and she really made me flourish in the role.
And she continued to work after her year as mayor, especially in relation to Fortalice, because she believed in what she stood for.
“Someone was so loving and caring.
“Of course I am devastated and my thoughts are with my husband Steve and her family.”
Current Bolton Mayor Cllr Linda Thomas said she was “devastated” by the death of Ms. Wharton.
She added: “Gay has been a good friend to many of us. It touches so many lives and we all love them.
“He was an exemplary mayor and continued his excellent work as an ambassador and fundraiser for Fortalice.
“Gay has made an enormous contribution to the life of this city, we will miss him.
“Our thoughts are with her family, whom we all think of.”
Gill Smallwood, chief executive of Fortalice, met Mrs. Wharton when she was mayor and said the couple “got off right away” and became friends.
He said Ms. Wharton was “happy” to be invited to become a sponsor, and they have worked hard for victims of domestic violence ever since.
Gill said: “She has always been at the forefront of fundraising for us.
“He organized the Christmas market for us, the mayor, and he always accompanied me to events.
“It has always been a fundraiser for us, fundraisers and above us. He was a wonderful boss with a big heart.
“That was one of the nicest people I have ever met. We miss you so much, not just as a boss, but as a very special friend to me.
Bolton’s council chair Cllr David Greenhalgh said: Gay was one of Cllr Donaghy’s greatest and has been friends with many of us around the world, participating in numerous charities and fundraisers where he could.
“Always with a smile on his face, always supported, always committed to improving the lot of others.
“Our thoughts and the love of all of us advise his family on this tragic news.”
Sergeant Andrew’s Investigative Unit page on GMP Severe Collision said: “Unfortunately, a woman died after this incident and our thoughts are with her family and relatives so that they can accept this terrible news.
“This confrontation took place in broad daylight, so we want to appeal to all those who may have been in the region who submitted to this investigation and help the police at that time.
“We are particularly interested in speaking with someone who has experienced the collision or who may have photographs of the vehicle.”
