Moment drug driver loses control of Audi and smashes into 13 people

Horror CCTV shows moment baby in a pram is pinned against the wall after drug driver, 29, lost control of his Audi at 40mph and smashed into 13 people – as he is jailed for three years

  • Kamran Khan, 29, was driving his Audi at 40mph through Leeds, West Yorkshire
  • CCTV shows him collide with another car and crash into a church building
  • Five children were injured and a baby in a pram pinned against a wall by the car
  • Leeds Crown Court heard he was high on cannabis and driving in wet weather
  • He pleaded guilty to causing injury by dangerous driving and was jailed for three years and banned from driving for over six years

This the terrifying moment a drug driver going more than 40mph over the limit lost control of his car and smashed into 13 people – including a baby in a pram.

Kamran Khan was high on cannabis driving a racy Audi RS6 when he collided with another car and crashed into a church building with dozens of people inside.

A video clip shows the moment a person and a child walking with a pram were ploughed into by one of the vehicles and sent flying through the air.

Police said it was ‘sheer luck that only two people were seriously injured.’

In total, five children were injured in the smash, which happened in Leeds, West Yorkshire, in 2019.

Khan, 29, was arrested and pleaded guilty to two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

Appearing in the dock earlier this month, he was jailed for three years.

Leeds Crown Court heard was driving an Audi RS6 in rainy weather on September 29, 2019, when he collided at speed with a Peugeot 508.

The force of 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.

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.

‘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.’
