Uninsured motorcyclist Ahrrus Hussain killed a 73-year-old grandmother while pulling a wheelie on a busy main road.
His stunt riding the bike just on its back wheel has landed him a jail stretch of four years and nine months.
The 28-year-old from Densham Road, Stratford, admitted causing Raxmo Sharif’s death by dangerous driving in July last year.
Mrs Sharif died from multiple injuries at Whipps Cross Hospital hours after the incident in Leytonstone High Road.
Hussain himself was treated in hospital for minor injuries and discharged, then later arrested.
But while on bail, he was prosecuted for driving an Audi car at 132mph on the A1 the following month, Snaresbrook crown court heard. It contravened his bail conditions.
Det Sgt Stuart Henson, from the Met’s Road Death Investigation unit, said after Tuesday’s court hearing: “Hussain’s dangerous and unacceptable riding caused fatal injuries to an innocent pedestrian.”
