A man died when he became trapped in a burning car after his work colleague drove too fast on a road in Birmingham.
And as the vehicle became engulfed in flames, sick youths took photos of the scene using their mobile phones, Birmingham Crown Court heard.
Nicolas Brown, 28, of Boulton Road, Handsworth, who admitted causing the death of Benjamin Pawsey by dangerous driving was jailed for two years and banned from driving for five.
Judge Frank Chapman said: "This is not a case where you were drunk and irresponsibly driving dangerously. It is not a case where you were racing anybody else. But it is a case where you were driving far too fast.
''The car toppled over. You and Leon were able to get out but Benjamin wasn't.''
David Swinnerton, prosecuting, said the defendant, Mr Pawsey and Leon Randall all worked for a company called Business Intelligence Direct based in Edgbaston and that on June 7 last year they left work for a night out.
He said they had initially played six-a-side football at Birmingham University, had gone to a pub and finally to Moseley village for a salsa night. They then left the venue in a Vauxhall Corsa being driven by Brown, with Mr Pawsey a back-seat passenger.
Mr Swinnerton said one witness described Brown driving at high speed and accelerating even faster while another said he had heard the screeching of an engine.
Brown, he said, drove for about half-a-mile before losing control at a bend in Salisbury Road, Edgbaston, the car hitting a kerb and its front end ending up against a low wall. The first person to come on to the scene found Brown, who he believed to have been thrown out, sitting on the pavement.
Brown said his legs were broken and the passer-by started to drag him away from the vehicle from where Randall also emerged.
Mr Swinnerton said by now the Vauxhall had started to burn and was quickly engulfed in flames.
He said a woman working at a nearby nursing home also helped to drag Brown away and then noticed Mr Pawsey inside, who was not moving and apparently unconscious.
Mr Swinnerton said by the time she tried to get to the trapped man, the flames had got worse and she was held back by other members of the public.
He said a "sad feature'' of the case was that she recalled a number of youths nearby who she asked to help but who, instead, took pictures. The fire brigade later extinguished the fire and a post mortem examination revealed Mr Pawsey, who had suffered a number of fractures, had died from smoke inhalation. Mr Swinnerton said a police accident investigator later estimated that Brown had been travelling at between 56 and 62 miles-per-hour before the accident, about twice the speed limit.
A statement was read out from the victim's mother, Linda Heynes, who said that Mr Pawsey was an only child and went on "my heart is truly broken and my life will never be the same again.
"Living with this grief and sadness is indescribable.'' Philip Bradley, defending, said Brown was deeply remorseful for having killed his close friend and that he himself was severely injured and spent three weeks in hospital.
