An 11-year-old girl who was mowed down by a car had her life saved - by her school bag, it emerged Wednesday. Lucky Ayse Kinsman was walking home from school with her twin sister when she was struck by a blue Peugeot 206 estate which jumped a red light.

A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police said a female driver of the Peugeot stopped at the scene of the accident. She was questioned on suspicion of driving without due care

Jumping a red light is NOT ‘driving without due care’, it is a deliberate action and is dangerous driving. And knocking down a school child in these circumstances is not an accident but a predictable consequence.
