A road in Leeds known to be used as a ‘drag strip’ by boy racers, has seen two children get knocked down in a hit and run.
Raham Saleem aged two and his sister Sabam aged ten were knocked down on Saturday afternoon and remain in a critical condition following surgery.
Witness Inzimaam Sulman aged just 12 said: “I was playing in my bedroom and I heard a car driving really fast up the road…I saw the children walking across the street and the car just smashed into them.”
Residents say that cars often hit speeds of 50mph down the street as it’s a long road, the speed humps seem to be no deterrent and nothing seems to be done about it.
Police are urging the driver to come forward and are currently studying CCTV footage.
