Laid up in hospital, a brace round her neck - this is Sarah Cameron, beginning her recovery after being struck by a car in a hit-and-run.

Sarah, aged 21, was hit by a speeding car at a pedestrian crossing on Ecclesall Road, Sheffield, and was flung around 20 metres down the street.

The Sheffield Hallam University law student’s family believe she cheated death only thanks to her skills as a former junior champion gymnast, curling herself into a ball as she hit the road.

Sarah’s mum Rachael, aged 48, has appealed again for information to catch the two cars involved in the hit-and-run - saying the culprits ‘must have some conscience’.

Both vehicles ignored red lights at the crossing, opposite Marks and Spencer on Ecclesall Road, overtaking stationary vehicles as they did so.

Sarah was just yards from her home, returning with her mum and two flatmates following a meal to celebrate her 21st birthday the previous day.

“The guy who hit Sarah is a human being, so must be traumatised,” said Rachael.

“They clearly knew the road. There’s no way they were doing 30mph. They were going at a hell of a speed.”

The mum added: “Somebody might have seen the cars before or after they left the crossing.”

Rachael said ‘about 12 good witnesses’ who saw last Wednesday’s crash had been found, and CCTV footage recovered, but the images were too grainy to immediately identify the cars involved.

“I just feel sick and keep reliving it every time I close my eyes,” she said.

Sarah is originally from Ossett, Wakefield, and now faces the prospect of not graduating from university with her friends.
