A hit-and-run driver has been jailed for four-and-a-half years after causing the death of a father-of-three in a collision.


This article will provide an overview of the incident and examine the sentence handed down by the court.

The defendant, Anusan Arumainayagam, was driving a BMW with three passengers on Audley Road, Stechford, Birmingham, on March 22, 2023.

He was travelling at 75mph in a 30mph zone when he collided with a parked Mercedes. The impact caused his car to spin and collide with Kyle Jones, who was riding a motorcycle in front of him.

In passing sentence, Judge Dean Kershaw acknowledged that Arumainayagam had reported the incident to the police within 24 hours, but emphasized that the defendant had been travelling at an excessive speed and had misjudged the situation.
