A DRUNK driver who posted a “disgusting” message on Facebook after killing a father-of-three in a head-on crash has been jailed for eight years.
Joshua Jeffrey wrote: “PMSL. I did this. I was the driver,” when Liaqat Mahmood’s employer, 1st Choice Private Hire, publicly announced details of his funeral arrangements, Bradford Crown Court heard.
Jeffrey, 21, then repeatedly denied to the police that he was driving the black Rover estate that smashed head-on with Mr Mahmood’s blue Vauxhall Vectra.


He said his twin brother, Ryan, was at the wheel during the crash in Park Lane at 1.15am on December 24, 2015.
The court heard that Ryan Jeffrey, the front seat passenger in the Rover, was unconscious at the scene of the collision. He was taken to Leeds General Infirmary on a spinal board with a head injury and suspected fractured hand but had since made a satisfactory recovery.
Mr Mahmood, 33, had to be cut from his vehicle. He was shouting and moaning in pain and taken by ambulance to Leeds General Infirmary where he suffered a cardiac arrest and died the same night.
Joshua Jeffrey got out of the Rover, staggered towards the back of the car and fell over, prosecutor John Bull said.
A nurse at the scene who tried to help him noticed a strong smell of alcohol coming from the vehicle.
He pushed her aside and was aggressive and abusive, threatening: “If you don’t get off me, I’ll mash your face in.”
