In court today it was revealed Payne was driving at least 86km/h before the crash on Secret Harbour Boulevard.

According to The West Judge Simon Stone was urged to suspend jail time due to Payne's age, remorse and slim chance he would offend seriously again.

But Judge Stone said the consequences of speeding were so dire, he had to send the teenager to prison.

Payne will be eligible for parole after 21 months. He has also been suspended from driving for three years.
