A MOTHER has spoken of her 15-year-old child's shock after she was involved in an horrific road accident.
Melanie Laws's daughter, Rebecca, was one of five teenagers injured when a car was in collision with them on Station Street in Meltham at 12:20am on Saturday.
Mrs Laws of Crosland Moor said: "My husband Chris and I got a call from a WPC around 12:45am saying there had been an accident. We were in a lot of shock.
"When we called Rebecca on her mobile she was in shock and shivering. She was talking gibberish."
Rebecca was in a group of Honley High pupils standing outside Yummies chip shop in Meltham when a silver Vauxhall Vectra approached.
Mrs Laws said: "They heard a horrible screeching noise. Half of the group got out of the way in time, but half didn't. Rebecca was hit from behind and one of the wheels went over her foot."
The parents rushed to the Huddersfield Royal Infirmary where the five teenagers were being treated for their injuries.
Mrs Laws said: "When we saw Rebecca she was wet through and in shock. But some of her friends were much worse."
Rebecca left the hospital around 5am with a plaster cast on her foot.
But in spite her injury she still attended her school prom at the Galpharm Stadium last night.
Mrs Laws said: "She was determined to go to the prom even though she wasn't able to dance."
Rebecca also attended her school's awards assembly yesterday morning before going to the HRI for X-rays at 11am.
Doctors were unable to tell if she has any nerve or tendon damage because of severe swelling.
A 17-year-old boy who suffered serious head injuries in the incident was transferred from the HRI to the Leeds General Infirmary on Saturday. He is in a stable condition.
Two of the girl victims were still in the HRI yesterday but it is hoped one of them will be released today.
The 41-year-old driver, who is believed to have been attacked by an angry crowd after the collision, was released after police questioning.
Anyone with information on the incident should call PC Dave Briggs at Huddersfield traffic police on 01484 436847.
