Jail for death drivers

Two young men have been sentenced to a combined total of 10 years prison for killing a motorcyclist in Tasmania's south last year.

23 year old Haden Hori Anderson and 22 year old David Gallagher hung their heads as Justice Pierre Slicer read out their fate.

The Hobart Criminal Court heard Anderson and Gallagher were racing each other at high speeds when Anderson's car hit 25 year old motorcyclist Aaron Bumford, near Franklin, killing him instantly .

Justice Slicer said the crash was horrendous and has had a devastating effect on Mr Bumford's family.

Anderson was sentenced to six years prison for manslaughter, and Gallagher received four years for causing death by dangerous driving.
