A Brixton man who drove at three times the speed limit, ran a red light, and fled the scene after killing a delivery driver in Lambeth has been jailed.

Abdirahman Ahmed, 20, Lilford Road, appeared at Croydon Crown Court on August 3 where he received a sentence of 13 years for causing death by dangerous driving.

Ronaldo de Oliveira, a 44-year-old delivery driver, was on his moped delivering parcels when Ahmed's BMW crashed with him on Leigham Court Road in Streatham on May 11.

It is estimated that Ahmed was driving between 55 and 60mph in a 20-mph zone.

The impact caused the BMW to flip over and come to rest on its side at Knollys Road at 8.15pm.

Despite the efforts of emergency services, Ronaldo died at the scene.

Although Ahmed initially fled the scene, he was later identified through DNA tests conducted by Met forensic practitioners.

Samples of his DNA were recovered from the airbag of his BMW.

Ahmed was also given 18 months imprisonment for causing death by driving while unlicensed and causing death by driving while uninsured.

Both sentences are to run concurrently.

Ahmed has been banned from driving for seven years, with an extension of six and a half years.

Due to Ahmed's early guilty plea, his custodial sentence was reduced to nine years and nine months.
