A motorcyclist who was going twice the speed limit when he hit and killed a 12-year-old boy has been jailed for just under three years.
Dariusz Adamusiak was riding his motorbike in 20mph area in Wembley, north west London, when he collided with schoolboy Qusai Alomar on September 16, 2021.
The boy, who was from the area, was taken to hospital where he died three days later.
A court heard that Adamusia, 37, was riding his Yamaha motorbike at a speed of at least 39mph in the 20mph zone. He stopped after the collision, which happened at around 5pm, and remained at the scene.
Adamusiak, from Barham Court, Wembley, pleaded guilty to causing death by dangerous driving at the Old Bailey and was sentenced on Friday. He was jailed for two years and ten months, and will serve half in custody.
The remainder of his sentence will be served on licence.

He was also disqualified from driving for four years and five months. To get back behind the wheel, he will need to pass an extended driving test.
DI John Millward, of the Met’s Roads and Transport Policing Command, said: ‘This was truly a tragic case where a young boy sadly and needlessly lost his life due to a motorcyclist who ignored the designated speed limit.
‘I would like to send my continued condolences to this young boy’s family, and thank them for their patience and trust in the investigation.
‘I would also like to thank my detectives and colleagues for their professionalism and dedication to seek justice for this grieving family.’
