Hussain also pleaded guilty to causing the death whilst driving uninsured for which he was sentenced to 12 months to run concurrently and was also disqualified for seven years and ordered to take a re-test.
Police were called at 16.47 hours on Thursday 25 July 2013 to reports of a collision between a motorcycle and a pedestrian outside the library in High Road, Leytonstone.
Police and the London Ambulance Service attended the scene and Raxmo Sharif from E11 was taken to Whipps Cross Hospital where she died later the same day.
A post mortem was held on 30 July and the cause of death was given as multiple injuries.
Ahrrus Hussain who was riding the motorcycle was taken to hospital suffering minor injuries. He was subsequently discharged and was arrested on 25 July on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
During the court case it was revealed that whilst on bail for this offence, Ahrrus was prosecuted for driving an Audi car at 132mph on the A1 in August of this year, in contravention of his bail conditions.
Investigating Officer Detective Sergeant Stuart Henson from the Road Death Investigation Unit said:
“Mr Hussain’s dangerous and unacceptable riding caused fatal injuries to an innocent pedestrian. I would like to pay tribute to Mrs Sharif’s family for their resolve throughout the enquiry.”
