Council bosses had not prioritised safety improvements on the road where 14-year-old Jasmyn Chan was killed, despite two other teenage girls being injured in collisions prior to her death.
The collisions, one of which resulted in a teenager suffering serious injuries, occurred close to the spot on Normanton Hill, Intake, where Jasmyn was hit on May 9 this year. Jasmyn, a student at Birley Community College, was killed by a hit-and-run driver as she crossed the road. She died after pushing her friend out of the way of an oncoming car.
But, despite previous collisions taking place nearby, Sheffield Council had not classed the road as a ‘high collision location’ at the time of Jasmyn’s death.
