Motorist who killed and seriously injured driving over 100mph in a residential area jailed for five year two months!

A motorist who killed a passenger and seriously injured another in a collision where his speed exceeded 100mph in a residential area has been jailed for five years and two months.
Vinit Patel, 30, was sentenced at Leicester Crown Court today (Friday 22 April).
At around 11.30 pm on Sunday 17 January last year, police were called to Coleman Road in Evington following a report that a Seat Leon Cupra had collided with a tree. On arrival, they found that the impact of the collision had caused the car to split in two – and that the rear end was alight.
The back-seat passenger – a man in his 20s who owned the car – was pronounced dead at the scene. Patel and a front seat passenger, now aged 40, were both found unconscious at the scene and taken to hospital for treatment.
The passenger was found to have suffered broken ribs and a facial fracture which required three metal plates to be inserted, as well as a fracture to his lower back.
Enquiries carried out by the force’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU) determined that Patel’s speed was approximately 120mph more than 100 metres before the car collided with the tree.
Patel was driving at four times the speed limit in the area – 30mph.
