PARENTS on a Sheffield road plagued by speeding drivers are demanding the council take action after a 15-year-old girl suffered serious head and pelvis injuries when she was hit by a car.
The latest accident on Bradway Road happened on a stretch opposite Dore and Totley Golf Club on Sunday afternoon.
Father-of-two Adrian Frost returned from a birthday party with his daughters, aged four and six, to find a girl’s shoe lying in the road.
“We are not happy with the speed people do there,” he said. “It’s a 30mph limit but not well signposted. It’s the main route to school for a lot of people and there are two pre-schools nearby.”
The road was closed while police investigated. The girl, who is being treated in Sheffield Children’s Hospital, was struck by a VW Passat driven by a 34-year-old local man.
“We have complained about excessive speed, poor signage and an unrepaired crossing, broken bollards and lighting, on this road,” added Mr Frost. “The council have always responded that the road is not a priority – even though we have had two motorcyclist deaths and a dog killed recently.”
On Friday a three-year-old girl suffered a broken leg in a hit and run on Fir Vale Road, near to Crabtree Close. The road policing unit is appealing for witnesses to help trace a dark hatchback car that fled the scene following the accident at 11.20pm.
