Police are appealing for witnesses after a car sped through a puffin crossing in Kettering, nearly hitting a mum and her children.
The incident happened at about 4.15pm on Wednesday, October 14, in Rockingham Road, close to the Sainsbury’s store.
The mum, who did not want to be named, had just picked her three children up from school when a silver Honda Civic sped towards them even though the traffic lights were on red.
She said: “We waited for the lights to turn red and for the green man to appear before crossing and then I heard my daughter scream.
“The car was not going to stop and I had to pick one of my sons up and lift him up in the air over the bonnet of the car which came towards us, while I had to push my other son out of the way.
“He fell into a lamp-post, causing him to hit his head.
“He obviously had some conscience as he drove past again a few minutes later but didn’t stop to see if we were OK.
“There was a red mark on his car which stands out and he was white, in his mid 30s and bald.
“He needs to be stopped because it can’t take a child to be hit and put in hospital or killed for him to be caught.”
Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has any information should contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
