Youth charged in fatal Alberta collision may not have had driver’s licence

RCMP have laid charges against a youth in a central Alberta collision that killed two people and seriously injured four others last summer.

BRETON — RCMP have laid charges against a youth in a central Alberta collision that killed two people and seriously injured four others last summer.

A woman and a teenager who were passengers in a minivan carrying a family from the Rocky Mountain House area died in the crash with a truck near Buck Lake on July 8.

Four others in the van were badly hurt.

Two youths in the truck were also taken to hospital, but were released the same day.

Mounties have said it appears the truck’s driver didn’t stop at a stop sign at an intersection and may not have had a licence.

The accused, who can’t be named under provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, faces charges that include dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death.

The youth is to make his first court appearance on Dec. 9 in Breton, Alta.
