A Wembley teenager has been jailed for dangerous driving which resulted in the death of one of his passengers.
Mohammed Nabil, 19, of Wyld Way, was driving his brother's car without permission when he lost control on a wet road on May 31, 2015, at around 3am.
He was sentenced to five years in prison at Harrow Crown Court on Thursday (May 4).
His car collided with a number of parked cars and one of his rear passengers, Zohaib Anwar, died at the scene.
A second rear passenger, a 45-year-old man, was left with life-changing injuries while two other passengers suffered minor injuries.
It was established Nabil had been drinking throughout the evening, having attended an Acton party, a pub in Hayes and a Southall restaurant before visiting a friend.
He drove his four friends to a Wembley nightclub shortly after midnight.
Inquiries established he reversed into a traffic island after they left the club, but he failed to inspect the Ford Focus for damage before heading to Kingsbury.
Around three miles into his journey, CCTV captured him driving at 47mph in a 30mph zone.
He lost control while he negotiated a chicane of parked cars and a traffic island.
Marks on the road showed that the rear, nearside tyre failed completely leading to loss of control.
Nabil was sentenced for numerous offences, having previously pleaded guilty.
He will face five years behind bars for causing death by dangerous driving, disqualified from driving for seven and a half years and ordered to pay a £120 supercharge.
Nabil also faces two years for causing serious injury by dangerous driving, two years for aggravated vehicle taking and one year for causing death while uninsured - all to run concurrently.
Detective sergeant Chris Osborne, from the Met's serious collision investigation unit, based at Alperton Traffic Garage, said: "This was a tragic case for all concerned.
"Nabil made a number of very poor decisions that night. First, he took his brother's car without consent knowing full well he had no insurance.
"He then spent the evening drinking before colliding with a traffic island.
"Having damaged the wheel of the car, Nabil carried on driving in a dangerous manner - at speed - in wet conditions.
"It was almost inevitable that a collision would occur. Sadly this led to the death of Zohaib Anwar and left another man suffering life changing injuries.
"Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Mr Anwar, and we wish his friend well in his ongoing recovery."
