This horror footage shows the moment a speeding Audi driver loses control and causes a car crash – injuring 13 people.

Kamran Khan was racing his RS6 at more than 40mph over the limit when he collided with another car, which smashed into a church.

More than a dozen people were injured in the terrifying incident in Leeds in 2019, including five children.

Khan, 29, was arrested and pleaded guilty to two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

He was jailed for three years during a sentencing hearing at Leeds crown court earlier this month.

The court was told that Khan was driving his powerful vehicle – capable of speeds of up to 150mph – in wet conditions on a busy road.

He then lost control and collided at speed with a Peugeot 508, which smashed into a Universal Church of the Kingdom of God.

This vehicle hit several people, including a baby in a pram – which was trapped between the car and a wall.

Most of the injuries were minor but one woman suffered a serious injury to the foot, the court was told.

As well as a custodial sentence, Khan, from Leeds, was also banned from driving for six and a half years.

PC Steve Harrison, of West Yorkshire Police’s Roads Policing Unit, spoke after the hearing.

He said: “While sentencing him, Judge Mairs repeatedly talked about Khan’s flagrant disregard for traffic laws.

“On that rainy day back in September 2019, Khan chose to drive over twice the speed limit and caused a crash which injured multiple adults and children.

“It is sheer luck that only two people were seriously injured and that the consequences were not even more serious.

“The court were told Khan had a previous conviction for a drug driving offence and had cannabis in his system at the time of this collision.

“Khan has been jailed for his actions and I hope this sends a clear message of the dangers and consequences of driving at excessive speeds whilst under the influence of drugs.”
