More eyewitness reports are still coming in.Aaron Ward, who lives off Cowbridge Road West, was at the retail park at Leckwith moments after the drama unfolded.
He said: "I pitched in and helped however I could. I just saw the back of the white van and police rushing in. He hit two women and dragged them 250 yards under the van.
"The mother was in a serious condition. The daughter was complaining of spinal injuries. I just dragged the first aid kit from one of the police vans and pitched in however I could, applying pressure to injuries and helping paramedics.
"The injuries were horrific, where she [the mother] had been dragged along the road. It's absolutely disgusting what's happened."

Cardiff City fan Paul Corkrey was at the stadium as the drama unfolded.
He said: "I was at the Cardiff City stadium this afternoon when I heard a crash, looked across and could see people running.
"I was with my grandson, age 6, and we went across to see what had happened. Many Cardiff City staff were there and Asda staff. It was a mum and her daughter that had been dragged from the garage, right around the roundabout, the debris was everywhere and her shoes were in the garage. It was a terrible scene.
"There was an exhaust pipe on the floor next two the two injured people, one looked to have had her hand severed, they were screaming at times and crying…it was heart breaking to see. An ambulance arrived and helicopters started to arrive."
