A banned driver who killed a baby in a hit-and-run crash in the Black Country while on bail for leading police on a 90mph car chase has been jailed for four and a half years.
Kabir Khan, whose customised Mitsubishi Evolution had the performance of a "supercar", ran off as two-month-old Mohammed Isa lay dying in the road after the crash in Smethwick.
Wolverhampton Crown Court heard that Khan, of Grange Road, Smethwick, was awaiting sentencing for driving at up to 92mph in a 30mph zone when the fatal crash occurred on November 27 last year.
During the previous offence, the 31-year-old, who later admitted being drunk and had already been disqualified from driving, was seen to turn off the lights of his Honda Civic shortly before midnight on July 18 last year as he tried to evade a police patrol.
The earlier pursuit in the Washwood Heath area of Birmingham, which covered three miles in little more than three minutes, ended when the Honda crashed into a roundabout, leaving debris strewn across the road.
Jailing Khan for causing death by careless driving and other motoring offences, Judge Nicholas Webb said: "You have shown absolutely no remorse for what you have done and this is as bad a case of causing death by careless driving as one can imagine."
David Lees, prosecuting, told the court that forensic tests showed that Khan's Mitsubishi and the Toyota Mohammed was travelling in would not have collided if Khan had been obeying the speed limit.
Four adults travelling in the Toyota, including Mohammed's parents and grandfather, were badly injured in the crash, while Mohammed was thrown clear of the vehicle and died of multiple injuries in hospital.
Mr Lees said the baby's father spent five weeks in hospital. while one of his friends suffered a brain injury and fractures to her legs and pelvis.
Khan admitted causing Mohammed's death at an earlier hearing, along with charges of driving while disqualified, failing to stop, failing to report an accident and driving with no insurance.
