This is the moment a 14-year-old boy was “left for dead” in a horrific hit-and-run by a speeding car fleeing police in Luton.
Mohammed Casim Hussain, 20, tried evading armed police officers on Leagrave Road, Luton, on 14 March 2018 while travelling at 59mph – nearly three times the speed limit.
At the same time, Ibrahim Ahmed tried to cross the road but was knocked into the air by Hussain, landing several metres away from the point of impact.
Ibrahim was given first aid by police at the roadside and police officers were commended for helping save the boy’s life.
After suffering organ damage and internal bleeding, he is still recovering.
Hussain, also from the town, was sentenced at Luton Crown Court last Tuesday to 16 months in a young offenders’ institution after admitting causing serious injury by dangerous driving.
