Re: A driver has been jailed for causing a crash which killed his friend as he tried to reach 100mph to film footage for Snapchat.<br />
Ricafort Gamboa, 25, from Bolton, raced along country roads near Aberystwyth, while friends inside his car filmed him on their mobile phones.<br />
But his Citroen C3 smashed into a wall, killing Ernest Pideli, 18 and injuring two others, Swansea Crown Court heard.<br />
Gamboa admitted causing death and serious injury by dangerous driving.<br />
He was jailed for four years after telling police: "I take full responsibility for what happened. My stupid decision to drive so fast was the cause of the collision.<br />
"I deserve to be punished. I am deeply sorry for what happened."<br />
Paul Hobson, prosecuting, told the court the group had been returning to Manchester after a holiday at a caravan site in Fishguard, Pembrokeshire.
