A man has been sentenced at Wood Green Crown Court to a year in prison after pleading guilty to causing death by careless driving.

In November last year,  23 year old Ali Bahramzadeh took his mother’s car without her consent and drove along Ashurst Road in North Finchley.

While heading towards a mini roundabout he collided with a moped, throwing the driver off the vehicle.

Bahramzadeh and the rest of the car’s occupants fled the scene.

Bahramzadeh went to a North London police station later that evening and confessed to the hit and run.

However, the other occupants of the vehicle have still not been identified.

The 18 year old victim, Alfie O’Keefe-Hedges, later died in hospital due to severe head injuries.

Detective Constable Rob Simpson, of the Met’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said:

We can only hope this sentence brings some small comfort to Alfie’s family, who have been devastated by his loss following Bahramzadeh’s actions. It will hopefully be some reminder to anyone who is driving to pay appropriate care and attention to avoid needless incidents such as this.
