A drink driver whose driving ended up killing a passenger in his car has been given a substantial prison sentence.

And the passenger who died was not even known to him.

The driver, 20 year old Jeremiah Briody had 5 passengers in his car before the incident occurred.

He was spotted driving dangerously by the police but refused to stop when asked to.

The court heard from 1 witness who stated that Briody was racing at speeds up to 100mph before he crashed into a round about.

Another witness, who was a passenger at the time begged him to slow down in 3 languages before the collision.

With a passenger seriously injured, Briody tried to make off from the accident and told police that noone was hurt.

The deceased, Vaidas Urbonas died in hospital 6 days later.

Briody pleaded guilty to 6 counts and already had a number of motoring offences.
