Her killer, Naseeb Ellahi, was travelling at a minimum speed of 61mph when he ploughed into the 14-year-old and her friend, Tia Tucker, who was 12 at the time.

He was jailed for seven-and-a-half years.

In October last year a crossing was unveiled to make it safer for pedestrians to cross the road.

Details of today's collision have not yet been released by South Yorkshire Police.
