Philip Benwell, 38, has been jailed for a year after he knocked into a girl at a pedestrian crossing

A cyclist has been jailed for a year after he fled the scene when he almost killed a young girl.
Philip Benwell, 38, crashed into nine-year-old Leila Crofts at a pedestrian crossing when the lights were on red in Bournemouth, Dorset, last July.
Leila was knocked unconscious in the collision as she headed to the beach with her au pair. But Benwell continued cycling as the girl was taken to hospital with serious head injuries and fought for her life in intensive care.
Benwell, who was cycling downhill at the time of the crash, came off his bike but then picked it up and walked off.
Witness Louise Barber had to use the au pair's mobile phone to telephone Leila's mother and inform her of the accident.
She tended to Leila along with lifeguards from the beach before the girl was rushed to hospital.
Mrs Barber, 42, said: 'The au pair couldn't speak English too well and was asking for me to speak to the child's mum on the phone.
'I spoke to her mum and told her I was sorry to say this, but her daughter had been in an accident - it was awful.'

lets bring sanity back to speed limits.
Drivers are like donkeys -they respond best to a carrot, not a stick .Road safety experts are like Asses - best kept covered up ,or sat on
