Statement from Irwin Mitchell Acting On Behalf Of Children Injured In Hit And Run

Driver Found Guilty Of Dangerous Driving


A man has been found guilty of dangerous/careless driving today (6 November) after a jury heard how he left two children critically injured when he knocked them down as they crossed the road outside their home.

Following a three-day trial at Leeds Crown Court, Mohammed Khalil Anwar was found guilty of dangerous driving after the incident on 18 August last year when he struck 10-year-old Sabah Saleem and her two-year-old brother Rayhan, before leaving the scene.

Irwin Mitchell Partner representing the family:

Expert Opinion
The family would like to thank the Crown Prosecution Service and police for investigating this incident.

“Now the criminal proceedings have completed, we will concentrate on helping Sabah and Rayhan continue to recover from the injuries they suffered by helping them gain access to the specialist support and rehabilitation they need.”
