Brothers locked up for high-speed crash in Bradford which left their cousin permanently disabled

A SHOW-OFF driver caught on camera by his brother speeding at up to 86mph seconds before a horror smash that maimed their cousin has been jailed for 26 months.
Farooq Raja was filming from the back seat of the powerful Volkswagen Golf R when Shahrukh Raja ploughed into a parked car on Northcote Road, Undercliffe, Bradford, on October 28 last year.
Front seat passenger, Aqib Raja, 19, suffered life-changing injuries in the smash that happened in fog shortly before midnight at the Otley Road junction, Bradford Crown Court heard yesterday.


The Golf ended up across the middle of the road, where it was struck by a speeding Range Rover.
Mr Walters said a police crash investigator estimated the speed of the Golf to be 85mph shortly before the crash. He was unable to replicate the accident conditions because it was too dangerous.
Local residents saw Farooq Raja standing dazed in the road. His brother was unconscious and Aqib Raja had suffered a fractured skull, bleeding under the skull, facial fractures and broken ribs. He was taken to Leeds General Infirmary and put in an induced coma until January. He did not leave hospital until August.
The court heard that his family had three meetings with doctors to discuss bringing his life to an end by withdrawal of care.
He could no longer walk unaided, had no use of his left arm and his hearing, sight and breathing were affected. He needed help with bathing and dressing and was completely dependent on his family.
