Two brothers have appeared in court over a crash that killed a 16-month old baby and three adults after a auto involved in a police chase collided with another vehicle.

Just after 8.50pm, a black VW Golf travelling along Main Road was involved in a collision with a black VW Touran people carrier, travelling towards Darnall preparing to turn right on to Bannham Road.

A Volkswagen Touran was struck by a VW Golf, which had been involved in a police pursuit.

Elliott Bower, of Harborough Avenue, Sheffield, has been charged with four counts of causing death by risky driving and three counts of causing serious injury by unsafe driving.

He is also charged with handling stolen goods, two counts of driving while disqualified, two counts of driving without insurance, possession of a bladed article and possession of cannabis.

No pleas were entered, with both men due to appear at Sheffield Crown Court on 10 December.

Adnan Ashraf Jarral, 35, and his one-year-old son Usman Adnan Jarral, and couple Vlasta Dunova, 41, and Miroslav Duna, 50, all travelling in the Touran, died in the crash. The boy is expected to be identified today.

Two families are believed to have been travelling in a black VW Touran people carrier when it collided with a black VW Golf vehicle in Sheffield on Friday evening, South Yorkshire Police said.

The trio, aged 17, 18 and 23, have been arrested and remain in custody after suffering minor injuries.

Mr Jarral's uncle Shafqat Mirza questioned the police's decision to pursue the auto through a residential area and said "the tragedy had left a gap which can never be filled".

A three-year-old girl has been taken to hospital with "life-threatening injuries" while one woman, aged 22, is in a critical condition and another woman in a stable but serious condition.

Mr Jarral's uncle Shafqat Mirza said his nephew was a "humble and polite" man who was extremely proud of his two sons and his stepson.

Mirza said: "It's been absolutely devastating for all of us and all the family".

The crash happened outside the home of Tufail Hussain, 80, who was one of the first people to get to the wreckage.

Detective Chief Inspector Jude Ashmore, said in a statement, "I know the local community will be shocked and saddened to hear what happened last night and we will have officers in the area today to speak to residents, should they have any questions or concerns".

The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) has launched an investigation.
