Chilling moment driver inhales laughing gas and boasts of 'big day' on Snapchat before killing teen, 17, in 98mph crash | The Sun

THIS is the chilling moment a speeding driver films himself inhaling "hippy crack" before ploughing into a wall and killing his passenger.

Reckless Rohail Jillani had no hands on the wheel as he raced at 98mph and gloated on Snapchat of his "Big Day".

Seconds later, he passed out and slumped at the wheel of his white Mercedes A180 travelling "ridiculously fast" through Manchester.

The hatchback lurched across the road before smashing into a railway bridge on Mancunian Way on January 10 last year.

The 11.30pm horror left 17-year-old Nadia Yusuf dead.

A third person in the car, Shafi Sufi, now 20, survived but he was left with serious, life-changing injuries.

Nadia, who was "looking forward to a bright future" according to her mum, was pronounced dead around two hours later.

Jillani, 25, was yesterday jailed for eight years and eight months at Manchester Crown Court after pleading guilty to causing death and serious injury by dangerous driving.

The Snapchat clip shows Jillani filming with one hand and inhaling balloons pumped with nitrous oxide, aka laughing gas, with the other.

Music can be heard blasting in the background of the video.

A man working near the scene at the time heard an "extremely loud bang", prosecutor Rachel Widdicombe said.

He went to the wreckage and found Jillani conscious, but "dazed and confused", while his two passengers were unconscious.

Jillani suffered a brain injury in the crash along the 40mph limit road.

Sentencing, Judge Alan Conrad KC told Jillani: "Nadia Yusuf lost her life in the collision caused by your driving.

"She was a young woman with everything to live for, whose life brought great joy to all."

In a statement, Nadia's family revealed she was studying to be a paediatrician.

They added: "She was taken from us by Jillani's reckless actions that could have been prevented and that have left a hole in our family which can never be repaired.

"Although no amount of time behind bars will bring Nadia back or be enough, we have hope that the justice system will prevail and kickstart our healing process."

Jillani, from Rusholme, Greater Manchester, was also banned from driving for nine years and ten weeks.
