A teenager who mowed down a grandmother and her two children as they crossed the road in East Ham has been jailed for 28 months.
Haris Najeeb, 19, of St Martin’s Avenue, East Ham, left grandmother Khalida Bibi, 57, with head injuries, two broken legs and broken ribs after his blue Ford Focus hit them at a traffic island in Central Park Road on October 27, 2016.
Mum-of-five Khalida was thrown violently into the air as a result of the crash and later had to undergo surgery.
Her 11-year-old grandson suffered a broken nose while her granddaughter, also 11, received cuts and bruises.
Najeeb was jailed for 28 months at Snaresbrook Crown Court yesterday after pleading guilty to three offences at an earlier hearing on May 2.
