Speeding P-plater jailed for causing young man's death after drinking

A P-plater who caused a man's death when he sped through an intersection in Melbourne's north after drinking at a nightclub has been jailed. Jayson Ziro, 21, was sentenced to two years and two months' jail in the County Court today after pleading guilty to one charge of dangerous driving causing death. Jack Baho, 20, was killed in Greenvale just after 2am on Sunday, November 25, 2018, when Ziro was just 18 himself. Despite being a P-plater, Ziro was driving home after drinking at a Prahran nightclub with a friend. The court heard he was travelling well above the 60km/h speed limit when he approached a red light at the intersection of Aitken Boulevard and did not slow down. Ziro instead swerved around a car waiting at the lights. His Volkswagen Golf was travelling at 82km/h when it collided with another car in the intersection. Judge Rosemary Carlin said the strong force of the crash, which propelled both cars across the intersection, was clear from the damage to the vehicle
