A TEENAGE Accrington schoolgirl died after a car driven by her father was hit by one vehicle and shunted into another.
An inquest heard that Anisa Khan, 13, suffered massive cranial damage in the incident at the junction of Shadsworth Road and Fecitt Brow, Blackburn.
One witness described a silver car coming down Shadsworth Road at between 60 and 70mph.
And a police expert said his calculations showed the vehicle driven by Miles Doyle had been doing 43mph at the time of impact but this could have been after braking.
The inquest heard that six week after Anisa's death in February her mother, Shameem Akhtar Khan, had also died.
Her father, Abdul Ghafar Khan, of Lister Street, Accr-ington, did not attend the inquest where he was represented by his son Mohammed Kamran Khan.
Shannon Gregory said she was walking down Shads-worth Road when she saw a silver Vectra "hurtling" down the road. She said a male pedestrian also appeared "disgusted" at the way the car was being driven.
Seconds later the silver car hit a red car which had pulled out of Fecitt Brow.
The red car, driven by Mr Khan, hit a Land Rover Freelander which was waiting to come out of the opposite side of the junction. It span round several times before coming to rest on a grass verge.
Miss Gregory said: "I thought the silver car was probably doing between 60 and 70mph. I was shocked at how fast it was going. I thought to myself he is bound to be in an accident."
Sharon Ratcliffe, the driver of the Land Rover, said she had three children in her vehicle and was taking them to school.
She stopped at the junction to turn right up Shadsworth Road and saw the silver car coming down at "high speed".
Almost immediately there was a collision with a red car which then collided with her vehicle.
Mrs Ratcliffe said: "My car was pushed sideways by the impact."
Mr Doyle, of Hastings Close, Blackburn, told the inquest he first became aware of the red car when it pulled out in front of him.
He claimed he was only doing between 25 and 30mph at the time of the crash.
Coroner Michael Singleton recorded a verdict of accidental death.
