Horrifying moment mum and child, 4, left for dead after being mown down by ‘taxi’ as they walked along the pavement | The Sun

THE HORRIFYING moment a mum and her four-year-old child were left for dead has been captured on CCTV, after they were mown down by a "taxi".

The terrifying blow came as the pair walked hand in hand along the pavement in Batley, West Yorkshire yesterday afternoon.

A red "cab" driver appears to mount the kerb and knock the pedestrians back before speeding off, leaving them lying in shock and pain in the dust.

Both the mum and her tot suffered broken bones from the collision but are stable in hospital, according to their relatives.

Yet their furious family have taken to social media to hunt down the guilty motorist, by sharing CCTV of the horror.

In the footage which the family posted, a red car with a taxi logo can be seen driving fully on the pavement as the pair take a lunchtime stroll.

Mother and child are coming the other way on the pavement, in the shadow of stone wall separating the street, Track Road, from the green open space beyond.

The driver appears to make no attempt to change direction as he ploughs into both pedestrians, crushing them against the stone wall.

The driver then veers over to the other side of the road, clips the opposite kerb, and speeds away from the scene.

A cloud of dust is left hanging in the street as if the car, resembling a VW Passat, has scraped the stone wall.
