Dad kills son, hurts wife and daughter in horror crash during 100mph m-way race

A dad killed his three-year-old son and left his wife and daughter seriously injured while racing another driver at more than 100mph.

Israr Muhammed, 41, faces jail after crashing on a westbound stretch of the M62 on July 1, 2018.

His car got just ten metres from Adam Molloy's as they took part in the deadly duel close to the M18 junction near Goole.

The race came to a tragic end when a tyre on Muhammed's Honda Civic blew out causing him to career down an embankment and smash into trees, HullLive reports.

The crash killed his three year-old boy Say Han Mohammed Ali while his seven year-old daughter suffered serious and life-changing facial injuries.

Their mother suffered multiple head and internal injuries and was in a coma for over a month.

Both Muhammed, of Batley, West Yorks, and Adam Molloy, have been been found guilty of causing death by dangerous driving.

Molloy failed to stop at the scene and was later arrested.

The M62 was closed for several hours while the crash was dealt with.

A spokesman for Humberside Police said: "Our Serious Collisions Unit carried out an extensive and exhaustive investigation and established that the driver (husband and father to his family) had been engaged in a ‘race’ on the motorway with another Honda Civic.

"Using dashcam footage from an independent witness the two vehicles were calculated to be travelling in excess of 100mph at less than ten meters apart.

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

"The driver of the second vehicle, Molloy, 29, from Normanton, failed to stop at the scene of the collision but was subsequently arrested and charged with causing death by dangerous driving and two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving."

A nine-day trial at Hull Crown Court concluded last week after which the jury returned a unanimous guilty verdict against both men on all counts.

Both drivers are due to be sentenced on the November 2.
