A speeding driver who killed two Fife women on a pedestrian crossing has been jailed for nearly five years.
James Clunie was banned from driving for a decade after admitting mowing down Jane MacDonald, 38, and Abby Hucknall, 18, as they went to a supermarket in Kirkcaldy.
The 36-year-old motorcycle mechanic appeared at High Court in Livingston having earlier pled guilty to causing their deaths by careless driving.
A tracking device on his Land Rover Discovery clocked his driving at speeds of up to 115mph on ‘A’ roads and at more than three times the 20mph limit through a village.
Judge Lord Turnbull described the father-of-three’s attitude to the safety of other road users as “utterly contemptuous”.
In a tribute, Miss Hucknall’s relatives said: “Abby’s family are devastated by this tragic loss.
“She was a very bubbly, caring and beautiful girl, a much loved daughter, sister and granddaughter who will be sorely missed by all who knew her.”
