‘Cowardly’ driver who went to bed after killing boy, 15, jailed for 40 months – Liverpool Echo
A driver who mowed down and killed a 15-year-old boy riding his bike has been jailed.
Leo Meek ‘took out’ Jack Jones while driving a Volkswagen Tiguan on Manor Drive at around 9.40pm on April 26 this year.
The 15-year-old from Moreton had been cycling the familiar route to his aunt’s house after spending the evening watching a film with his little brother.
Meek, 22, left Jack with fatal head and neck injuries while speeding at between 53 and 55mph on a 30mph residential road.
He then fled the scene, and didn’t even apply his brakes, ditching his friend’s dad’s car and getting a taxi home, where he went to bed.
