Footage released of callous pair who left mum and daughter in car wreckage

DRAMATIC footage has emerged of a car crash in Dewsbury involving a suspected stolen vehicle.

Tracey Scaddan, 35, and two-year-old daughter Caitlin were badly hurt in the Leeds Road incident at around 3.40pm on July 12.

Police have now revealed that the black VW Golf which was in collision with their white Ssangyong Korando may have been stolen.

Tracey and Caitlin had to be cut free from the wreckage and then airlifted to hospital.

Footage of the crash was recorded by a dashcam in a passing lorry.

Two suspects can be seen getting out of the VW Golf and walking off up the road, above.

PC Gavin Smith, of Kirklees Police, said: “This was a terrifying incident for the victim and her daughter.

“Not only has the offending car been stolen but it has been driven with such recklessness and speed it is miraculous that no-one was more seriously injured.

“On colliding with the car, the suspects also left the scene with no regard for the occupants of the car they collided with.”

Anyone with information about the crash can call PC Smith on 101 quoting reference number 13160297787 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
