Moment before car crashes into mum and babyHorrifying CCTV footage shows the moment a mum pushing her baby daughter across a road is struck by a reckless hit and run driver.
Rajdeep Kaur, 37, was pushing her daughter in a pram across North Hyde Lane, in Hounslow, west London, when a silver BMW overtook traffic in the wrong direction, hitting her and narrowly missing her baby.
Mrs Kaur was thrown into the air by the force of the car while her child, who was 13-months old at the time, remained in the middle of the road at risk of being hit by other drivers.
The mum was left in a life-threatening condition by the collision and suffered injuries to her leg and pelvis. Her baby went unharmed.
The driver of the BMW sped off and has not come forward since, leading the charity Crimestoppers to issue a £5,000 reward for information.

Mrs Kaur, who spent months in hospital as a result of the collision, is now immobile and unable to care for her child independently.
She can walk a few steps with the help of a walking frame, but will never make a full recovery from her injuries, according to Crimestoppers.
Witnesses captured the BMW X5’s number plates, but these were later found to be cloned.
Alexa Loukas, Crimestoppers London regional manager, said: “Our thoughts are very much with Mrs Kaur, a mother whose life will never be the same again due to her injuries.
“You may have heard something about the vehicle or driver involved, but for whatever reason you haven’t shared what you know.

“We’re appealing directly to members of the community across Hounslow with this message. If you have any information about this tragedy, you can speak up and tell our charity what you know.
“Lots of people mistakenly think we are part of the police. We are completely independent and will never judge or ask for any of your personal details.”
Ms Loukas added: “What you tell us could help find some kind of justice for Mrs Kaur and her family and help make our streets safer for everyone.”
Computer IP addresses are never traced with Crimestoppers and no one will ever know if you contacted the charity. For telephone calls, there is no caller line display, no 1471 facility and calls have never been traced.
Information passed directly to the police will not qualify for the reward. Only information passed to Crimestoppers using its untraceable anonymous online form or via its UK Contact Centre on 0800 555 111 will qualify.
