CCTV footage shows the moment a driver going more than 40mph over the limit lost control and caused a car to crash into 13 people, including a baby in a pram.

Kamran Khan, 29, was driving a high-performance Audi RS6, which can go up to 150mph, when he collided with a Peugeot 508 in rainy conditions on September 29, 2019.

The crash forced the Peugeot to smash into a Universal Church of the Kingdom of God help centre, injuring several people inside and outside the building.

Most of these injuries were minor but one woman suffered a serious injury to the foot, while a one-year-old in a pram became trapped between the car and a wall.

In total, five children were hurt in the incident.

Khan was arrested and pleaded guilty to two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

Appearing in the dock at Leeds Crown Court earlier this month, he was jailed for three years.

As well as a custodial sentence, Khan, from Leeds, was also banned from driving for six and a half years.

PC Steve Harrison, of West Yorkshire Police's Roads Policing Unit, spoke after the hearing.

He said: “While sentencing him, Judge Mairs repeatedly talked about Khan’s flagrant disregard for traffic laws.

“On that rainy day back in September 2019, Khan chose to drive over twice the speed limit and caused a crash which injured multiple adults and children."

PC Harrison added: "It is sheer luck that only two people were seriously injured and that the consequences were not even more serious.

“The court were told Khan had a previous conviction for a drug driving offence and had cannabis in his system at the time of this collision.

“Khan has been jailed for his actions and I hope this sends a clear message of the dangers and consequences of driving at excessive speeds whilst under the influence of drugs."
