Four people, including a one-year-old boy, died after a horrible accident involving the transport of people and a car being pursued by the police.
The accident occurred in the Darnall area of Sheffield shortly after 8:50 pm Friday, killing the boy, two men aged 35 and 50 and a 41 year old woman who were all in the vehicle.
Three other people who were with them were injured, including a three-year-old girl and a 22-year-old woman fighting to stay alive.
Police in South Yorkshire announced that a black Volkswagen Golf had been involved in a lawsuit with a police vehicle before it collided with the black Volkswagen Touran occupied by the deceased .
The police arrested three men who, according to the police, were traveling in the golf course and suffered minor injuries.
The Golf, involved in the police lawsuit, was traveling along Main Road, while the Touran passenger car was heading towards Darnall and preparing to turn right into Bannham Road at the time of the accident.
Police said the one-year-old boy was pronounced dead after being taken to hospital, while the three adults were dead at the scene.
The Touran was driven by one of the two men who were killed, police said.
Three other passengers were injured, including a three-year-old girl who was injured and a 22-year-old woman who remains hospitalized in critical condition.
The third, a woman, is in a serious but stable condition at the hospital.
Three men traveling in the golf course – aged 23, 17 and 18 – have been arrested and are still in detention.
Since the golf was being sued before the collision, the South Yorkshire Police referred the incident to the Independent Police Office.
The detectives used witnesses or anyone with collision recordings to contact them.
Chief Inspector Jude Ashmore said, "First of all, my thoughts go to the families of the victims who lost loved ones during this incredibly tragic incident.
"A lot of resources were deployed on the scene last night. Officers from all emergency departments worked all night and this morning to help.
"Our priority now is to support the families of the victims and those affected and work tirelessly to determine the exact circumstances of what happened.
"Main Road should remain closed most of the day, as we continue to collect evidence and recover items from the scene.
"I know the local community will be shocked and saddened to hear what happened last night and that area officers will be going out today to talk to residents if they have questions or concerns.
"I would like to thank the people who helped immediately after the collision, as well as their support and patience during the evening.
"I would also like to ask anyone who has seen what happened or who may have a video clip of the collision to kindly contact us.
"Anyone with information should call 101 by mentioning incident number 741 of November 9, 2018."
