A driver and a biker were speeding excessively which resulted in a fatal pile-up in West Lothian have now each now been jailed for more than four years.

Ms Ashley Sadler reached 118 mph in her Honda motorbike and Daniel De Monerri drove 9mph in his Volkswagen Golf.

The victim Fiona Reid died in the five-vehicle crash as a result of the negative of Ms Sadler and Mr Monerri. 

Prior to the collision another driver had pulled into the right-hand lane of the duel carriage way to allow Ms Reid to enter the slip road. 

Ms Sadler’s motorbike struck the car in the right hand-lane and hit another motorcycle before losing control before crashing into the victim. 

Both Ms Sadler and Mr Monerri were sentenced at High Court in Edinburgh and were told that no sentence that was imposed was enough to ever compensate the loss for a loved one.

Lord Weir jailed the pair and banned Sadler from driving for 87 months and banned De Monerri for 80 months.
