Two drivers jailed after Fast and Furious-style motorway race kills boy, 3

2 min read

A three-year-old boy was killed after his dad competed against another driver in a Fast and Furious-style 100mph race.

Say Han Mohammed Ali was killed in a crash on the M62 after his dad, Israr Muhammed, 41, raced against Adam Malloy, 29.

His seven-year-old sister also suffered serious and life-changing facial injuries while their mother suffered multiple head and internal injuries and was in a coma for over a month, HullLive reports.

The pair drove at speeds in excess of 100mph on July 1 2018.

When a tyre blew on Muhammed's Honda Civic, the car lost control and careered down an embankment and smashed into trees near Goole, East Yorkshire.

Malloy fled the scene but was later arrested along with Muhammed.

Muhammed was convicted of causing death by dangerous driving, two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and causing death while uninsured.

Malloy was found guilty of causing death by dangerous driving and two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

Both were jailed for four-and-a-half-years at Hull Crown Court.

Dashcam footage showed Malloy and Muhammed racing on the M62.

The Honda Civic can be seen in the video driving on the outside lane of the M62, closely followed by Malloy's car, also a Honda Civic.

The car filming the race is travelling in the middle lane at speeds of 88mph and is very quickly overtaken by the other two.

At one point during the 16 second clip, Malloy's car can be seen to be less than 10metres away from Muhammed's before they race out of view.

The court heard soon after, the tyre on Muhammed's car blew out and the vehicle crashed.

Judge David Tremberg said: "This competitive driving started someway back before it was captured on dashcam footage.

"You, Israr Muhammed, had safe choices you could have made.

"Nobody forced you to exceed the speed limit, or stay, pigheadedly in the outside lane of the motorway as the middle lane was clear for a long stretch.

"The rules of the road are there for a reason.

“Each of you is culpable for creating an obvious, foreseeable and avoidable risk and dangers to yourselves and other road users.

"This young boy was entirely blameless and had his whole life ahead of him."

The crash closed the motorway for seven hours.
