Taryl Moxam had been out drinking with friends in Leeds when he stormed out of a hotel after an argument and drove away on April 3 last year.

He was twice over the limit for both drink and drugs when he smashed into a Vauxhall Insignia on Junction 26 of the M62.

Moxam, who suffered a broken wrist in the crash, was charged last month with causing the deaths of father-of-two Adam Afsar, 34, and 27-year-old Jason Wilby by dangerous driving.
