A MAN has pleaded guilty to causing the deaths of two men by dangerous driving in an early hours smash on the M62 in Bradford last year.

Taryl Moxam, who appeared in the dock at Bradford Crown Court wearing blue jeans and a blue tracksuit top, admitting causing the deaths of Adam Afsar and Jason Wilby on the M62 near Junction 26 for Chain Bar on April 2, 2018.

Moxam was at the wheel of a black Vauxhall Insignia which drove down the westbound carriageway of the M62 the wrong way at 2.34am, before colliding with a vehicle containing Adam Afsar, 34, and Jason Wilby, 27, near Chain Bar.

The 23-year-old, from Barlborough in Derbyshire, was remanded into custody to be sentenced on Thursday afternoon.

During the hearing, the families of Mr Afsar and Mr Wilby - who were seated in the public gallery - were scolded by Judge David Hatton QC, after some members of the families cheered and applauded when he told Moxam he is being remanded in custody.

Judge Hatton said: “I will not tolerate any interruptions in proceedings.

“Taryl Moxam, I will sentence this case on Thursday afternoon, until then you must remain in custody.”
