Claims of a cover up over Wolverhampton death crash are 'an insult to common sense' – defence tells jury
The jury in the case of the death of two young brothers who died in a crash in Wolverhampton have been told the claim that the driver's brother deliberately helped him cover up the accident is "an insult to common sense".
Pawanveer Singh, aged 23 months, and his brother Sanjay, aged 10, were in their mother's BMW on Wolverhampton's Birmingham New Road at 8.45pm on March 14, 2019, when an Audi car ploughed into them.
Both of the boys, from Sedgley, were killed instantly and their mother suffered spinal injuries but the driver of the Audi fled the scene despite passers-by confronting him about the crash.
Asim Khan who is the brother of the driver of the car Mohammed Sullaiman Khan is accused of perverting the course of justice by deliberately setting up a false tale where they claimed the car had been stolen.
