TRAGIC: Talaina died in the horror crash aged just 18

Horrified Cheryl Hussain fumed in court after Jack Thomas, 20, was ordered to pay her family £100 in compensation after admitting death by careless driving.

Thomas, who was 18 the time, had only passed his driving test two weeks earlier when he lost control of his car in a fatal crash which left Talaina Hussain dead.

Popular student Talaina, 18, had been picked up by Thomas from work in Greater Manchester before the pair went for a drive in Rochdale.

Thomas was driving his mum’s Peugeot 208 at a “high speed” along a 30mph road as Talaina sat in the passenger seat.

The car then approached a left-hand bend when it skid and smashed into a garden wall, with the passenger side being the worst hit.

Paramedics arrived within 10 minutes before rushing a badly injured Talaina, who had applied to study psychology at Edge Hill University, to hospital.

But she died just two days later when doctors and her family made the heartbreaking decision to end her life support.

Thomas had initially claimed his brakes had failed, and even told cops Talaina, who was in the passenger seat, grabbed his hand “affectionately” before the incident – which distracted him.

EMOTIONLESS: Jack Thomas showed no emotion as he was handed down his sentence

He pleaded guilty to a charge of death by dangerous driving, but remained emotionless throughout the sentencing hearing as he received a 26-week jail term which was suspended for 12 months.

He will also have to complete 280 hours unpaid work, has been disqualified from driving for 12 months and will have to pay £100 in compensation to Talaina’s family.

As she left Minshull Street Crown Court, mum Cheryl shouted at Thomas: “I hope my daughter haunts your dreams.”

Thomas will have to take an extended retest before he can drive again.

“This is an unspeakably tragic case involving the loss of a young life,” the judge said.

“It represents every parent’s worst nightmare.”
