A former ice addict has been imprisoned for 13 years for killing a mother and her teenage daughter in a terrible car accident.
Thomas Charles Adamson, 27, was traveling at speeds of 155 km / h at 165 km / h when his car crashed into 14-year-old Xinyu Yuan and his mother Meili Dai, 44 on the Gippsland Expressway in Cranbourne, Victoria, on August 9 last year.

Thomas Charles Adamson was seriously injured in the crash, and then spent a substantial amount of time in a wheelchair
Adamson, 27, was traveling at speeds of 155 km / h at 165 km / h when his car collided with Xinyu Yuan, 14, and his mother, Meili Dai, 44.
The schoolgirl and her mother left the private school of Xinyu, Lighthouse Christian College, after the interviews between parents and teachers in their Toyota when Holden Commodore de Adamson collided with them, killing them both instantly.
It was alleged that Adamson, a former ice user who had prior convictions for driving under the influence of alcohol and who was not licensed at the time of the fatal accident, had advanced several vehicles in quick succession before the accident occurred and fled the scene.
The court heard that he had previously discussed with his parents and his girlfriend, reported The Sydney Morning Herald.
He was seriously injured in the accident and spent a substantial amount of time in a wheelchair afterwards.
"His self-control was completely outweighed by his own emotions and the fact that he was intoxicated," Trevor Wraight, County Court Judge, told Adamson while condemning him.
& # 39; Your actions were completely indulgent with yourself. You were angry and you did not care about the safety of others on the road. "
It was alleged that Adamson had reached a number of vehicles in quick succession before the accident occurred and fled the scene

He had to be "held" when the emergency services removed the bodies of his wife and daughter from the car.
Police said Adamson had a blood alcohol reading between 0.12 and 0.165 at the time of the accident.
