But in the shocking clip, a motorcyclist can be seen – allegedly speeding through a red light at a set of roadworks before he crashes into the pair.

The 32-year-old dad is believed to have been on his way to collect a fish and chip supper when he attempted to cross the one-way carriageway about 8.30pm.

The clip shows the dad start to step out into the road after a stream of vehicles pass and the traffic clears.

But in a second, the motorist veers onto the wrong side of the road in an attempt to weave around the roadworks, at which point the dad glances over his shoulder and spots him – but just seconds too late.

The bike careers into the dad and daughter, who were then dragged 30ft down the road and out of sight of the CCTV camera that captured the crash.

The baby girl unbelievably escaped with cuts and bruises, but her 32-year-old father suffered serious leg and facial injuries in the incident on Saturday evening. Posts on social media claimed the motorcyclist then sped off after the terrifying collision.

One said: “The man was going to collect a chippy tea for the family when a motorbike careered through a red light at temporary roadworks striking the pair, sending them sliding around 30 feet down the road.

“Luckily, the two-year-old girl suffered minor injuries but her father suffering serious leg and facial injuries and was transported to hospital.”

Roads Policing Officers were said to have investigated the collision and subsequently arrested a suspect in connection with the incident.
