UPDATED: Toddler knocked down in Daubhill hit and run

The Bolton News: St Helens Road, Daubhill, where a toddler was knocked down by a hit-and-run driver. Picture by Dylan Collier. St Helens Road, Daubhill, where a toddler was knocked down by a hit-and-run driver. Picture by Dylan Collier.

A TODDLER was knocked down in a hit-and-run incident as she crossed the road with her family.

The girl, thought to be two years old, was crossing St Helens Road, Daubhill, at 12.30pm when she was hit by a car, which then drove off.

Neighbour Rashid Mogradia rushed out of his house to help after he heard the little girl’s screams.

He said: “I heard the collision and the scream of the child.

“To hear a scream of a child for so long, it meant I knew it was a serious incident.

“With another neighbour we did what we could to comfort the family, and give the police the information that they needed.

“I ran into the road to see what had gone on, and I saw the car was momentarily stationary, but within a few seconds it drove off.

“I tried to flag it down — to see if the driver was ok too — but it drove off.

“The girl was crying in agony, and her grandfather held her until the ambulance arrived to take her to hospital.”

Mr Mogradia described the car as a red Vauxhall Astra with an elderly-looking couple inside. The vehicle was driven off towards Bolton town centre.

The child was taken by ambulance to hospital, and it is understood her condition is not thought to be life-threatening.

Police sealed off the road to traffic around the junction of St Helens Road with Lister Street for more than an hour, while the forensic team searched for clues.

Tape was stretched across the pelican crossing.

A police spokesman confirmed that they were called to an incident at lunchtime with reports that a child had been hit by a car, and said inquiries were ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101.

Occasionally I have need to drive through that area and it's like the rules of the road are different. People will pull out on you and make out its your fault, people just pull up and double park with no warning at all. It's as if all the residents understand that they've made up their own rules, they're comfortable with it, but woe betide anyone driving through who expects drivers to have passed their test and to be vaguely familiar with the Highway Code.

My thoughts and prayers are with that young child. Is it just me or is there almost no police presence in Bolton anymore ? I have 100% confidence that I could drive from one side of Bolton to the other talking on a mobile, with no seat belt on, no tax or insurance and I would not get stopped. If I can spot laws being broken then why can't the Police ? We need a zero tolerance approach and fast before any more innocent people are harmed.

110% agree... especially on the double parking... ive noticed that the indicators only come on once at a full stop.. also the speeds and manner of driving is shocking to say the least... we had the incident on same road not too long back and i have yet to see any improvement in the policing of the road...then again judging by the stories of late about the MET police wouldnt suprise me if they been given a few back handers to ignore the majority of idiots driving.

i use this road all the time as many as 3 - 4 times a day and ive seen countless shocking incidents involving some drivers... Something needs to be done cause its clear to see the police cant/wont.

It is not a crime.

Parking enforcement in the most of the Uk including Bolton (and even Deane - yes it is still part of the UK) is decriminalised, thus the Police are not empowered to deal with it.

They can deal with obstructions, where the highway is totally blocked (not just difficult or awkward to pass), by towing cars away, as well as a few oddities like parking an HGV on the pavement.

That said parking enforcement for the council, must be one the most awkward things they deal with. You have a proportion of the population who want 0 tolerance, then the other half who call the parking enforcement officers (not traffic wardens) not fit to burn for booking people. But then again that's usually after they have been booked.

That said sometimes the CEOs do need a dose of common sense. I used to work with a lad who used to be an old fashioned yellow band traffic warden in Stockport. He used to say, I had two options on a certain day of the week stand outside the post office ticketing the old folk for walking on the zigzags or yellow lines while getting their pensions or stand outside the school... The school won everytime, then after 10 am he would walk up and down outside the post office to stop the old folk doing it. The thing was he was not on a targetted amount of

I guess you get my drift ........ These people bring shame on the more respectable and decent people of their community. I have never yet seen any of them booked for parking on pavements.

Robert 2012 next time take a 2000 miles detour and go and live in costa del sol you plonker and don't come back...bad driving doesn't make the place a s---hole - my neighbour is English and he will tell you he loves it here and will never move any where else.
It is a hovel and a sh!thole. If your friend and you like the sh!thole then so be it. I here there are some citizen patrols heading that way soon. So your friend will be safer, but it will still be a sh!thole.

This article was about a young child being knocked down on a busy road!!!!!
Why are so many comments getting heated between people, about shops , takeaways and the like? Really does not matter if it's an Asian community or not, this is about a young child being injured, be her colour, white, black, pink or yellow is of little concern, it could of happened to any race of child,given the busy stretch of road!!! Come on guys!! Get back to the matter in hand, and let's all wish this child a speedy recovery!!!

read the first line again
In defence of Boredofbolton - the original report did make it sound as if the toddler was unaccompanied; it has obviously been amended since

There are plenty of traffic wardens patrolling this road.I was booked for overstaying the 40 mins rule by 10! The crossings all have little cameras lodged on the top of the lights. I assume they are cameras. If its an elderly couple then it is surprising they drove off. Its usually young morons. I assume the driver must have panicked...little does he or her know that there are cameras down the road which will pick up his or her car's plates. I drive on the road regularly and I must say that many pedestrians need to be given lessons in crossing. Many of them run...others dash onto the road within a fraction of a second after the lights change to green. Serious road safety lessons are required. Hope the girl is recovering well.

FZoomzam the camera you comment about are actually sensors that sense when a pedestrian is on the crossing or waiting to cross. Therefore the traffic lights should not change to green for car drivers until the road is clear of pedestrians. Except those that rush across at the last second or those that choose to cross when the lights are red for pedestrians.
