Passenger records boy racer mate doing 100mph moments before he’s killed in Birmingham [Video]

A video showing the final seconds of a man’s life before he died in a horror smash has been released by police – after his boy racer friend was jailed.

Hasan Razzaq, 25, records himself holding a bottle of vodka, as his friend Uzaifa Ahmed, 27, tears around Small Health, Birmingham, at 100mph.

Moments later, Ahmed lost control of the vehicle, driving into a tree on Garrison Lane in April 2021.

Uzaifa Ahmed, 27, admitted to causing death by dangerous driving last week at Birmingham Crown Court and has been jailed for eight years and eleven months

The boy racer clambered from his wrecked car and left his friend to die, fleeing the scene without reporting it to emergency services.

Razzaq was taken to hospital, where he died two weeks later on April 18 2021 of serious head injuries.

Last week, Ahmed pleaded guilty to a whole raft of motoring offences, including causing death by dangerous driving, driving while disqualified, failing to stop at the scene of an accident, failing to report an accident, driving with no insurance and breaching a suspended sentence. 

Ahmed was sentenced at Birmingham Crown Court to eight years and eleven months in prison. 

He was also banned from driving for nine years and five months.  

Detective Sergeant Paul Hughes from West Midlands Police’s serious collision investigation unit said: ‘Hasan’s death is simply tragic. A young man has sadly lost his life.

‘Ahmed’s actions were irresponsible and dangerous. Leaving his friend was cowardly and unforgiveable. My thoughts remain with Hasan’s family at this very sad time.

‘We believe Ahmed fled the scene as he was likely over the drink drive limit and this sad case highlights the dangers of being reckless at the wheel.”

‘Ahmed has clearly shown no regard for anyone else. 

‘He was already a disqualified driver, driving a powerful car without insurance and in a manner that any other road user would clearly see as being dangerous. 

‘His actions have led to the death of a young man and not only that but he removed himself from the scene to avoid taking responsibility for his actions.’
