An uninsured driver has been jailed after he hit and killed a Woolwich man who pulled onto a hard shoulder to clear debris from his car.
Mohammed Ali was 18 at the time of the crash and reportedly driving over 100mph according to several witnesses as he overtook and undertook traffic in Rainham.
He was jailed for five years and seven months and disqualified from driving for 57 and a half months.
Ali was driving a BMW 330D on the A13 when he hit the stationary car of Kenneth Berry, 54, as the BMW moved from lane one to lane three and back to lane one where he lost control. Victim Kenneth Berry, 54, died as he was exiting his vehicle.
The sentence of 5 years and 7 months will again raise questions regarding short custodial sentences for those who kill using cars.
