Three men to attend court in connection with Leeds crash

Sabah Saleem Sabah Saleem was left with life-threatening injuries after the crash in August

Three men are to appear before magistrates in connection with a collision which left a young brother and sister seriously injured.

Sabah Saleem, 10, was left with life-threatening injuries after she and her two-year-old brother, Rayhan, were knocked down in Leeds in August.

The men, aged 36, 40 and 42, will appear in court next month.

A 26-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender has been released without charge.

West Yorkshire Police said the 36-year-old man was reported for summons for dangerous driving, failing to stop at the scene of an accident, failing to report an accident, perverting the course of justice and possession of cocaine.

The two other men have been charged with perverting the course of justice.

They will appear at Leeds Magistrates' Court on March 20.

The pair were hit on Brudenell Road in the city's Hyde Park area after buying onions for their family's Eid celebrations.

Both underwent surgery at Leeds General Infirmary and are understood to be recovering from their injuries.

A cousin, who was with Sabah and Rayhan, escaped injury.
