A Lancing man who was driving a van which left the road and crashed into a tree, killing one of the passengers, has been jailed for six years.
32-year-old Michael Everson, who's unemployed, and of Gravelly Crescent, was sentenced after appearing at Chichester Crown Court on Tuesday.
Everson was banned from driving for six years.
Everson had been at the wheel of a red Vauxhall Movano van shortly before 1am on Saturday, June 13, last year when it left the road in Offington Avenue in Salvington, Worthing, and struck a tree near its junction with Offington Drive.
Passenger Samuel Frost died at the scene.
Everson fled the scene on foot but was traced and arrested.
