A teenage girl charged after two young males were killed in a two-vehicle crash near Sylvan Lake made her first appearance in Red Deer youth court on Thursday.
The girl, 18, was 17 at the time of the crash on Oct. 30, 2008.
She was charged under the Youth Criminal Justice Act. Her name can’t be released because of provisions in the act.
She faces two counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death and a single count of dangerous driving causing bodily harm. She returns to court on June 11 after reserving her plea.
Defence lawyer Lorne Goddard told court that he just received a large binder of disclosure of information about the crash and needs time to digest it before entering a plea for his client, who appeared with him.
The 16-year-old youths killed were Colton Lakeman and Ray Schlahs, both of the Sylvan Lake area.
Three young women between the ages of 14 and 18 and a woman in her 60s were also injured in the crash.
Sylvan Lake RCMP were called to the crash at the intersection of Range Road 12 and Hwy 11 at 9:20 p.m.
Police said the investigation determined that a white car, driven by a 17-year-old female, was southbound on Range Road 12 and entered Hwy 11 without stopping at a marked stop sign.
Another car, driven by a 64-year-old woman, was travelling westbound on Hwy 11 and collided with the driver’s side of the white car.
One male and one female were thrown from the white vehicle. Police said earlier the 64-year-old woman had the right of way and tried to take evasive action to avoid the collision.
