A Birmingham man has been jailed for six years for causing the death of his nephew in a collision last year.
Kane Balogun, aged 14 from Bordesley Green, died when the car he was travelling in struck a tree on Stechford Road at Beaufort Avenue on 16 October.
Factory worker Anton Lewis (pictured above), aged 26 from Granville Square, Birmingham, was convicted of death by dangerous driving and sentenced to six years in prison at Birmingham Crown Court on Friday 15 July.
He will be disqualified from driving for eight years upon his release.
Sergeant Steve Newbury, from the force’s Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Lewis was found to have been travelling at excess speed with under-inflated tyres. He also tested positive for cannabis.
“There are no winners here. A young boy has lost his life, taken by a family member who will have to live with that for the rest of his life.”
