A 23-year-old man is now facing charges in connection with a Vaughan crash over the weekend that left two people dead.
At around 2:45 p.m. on Sunday, emergency crews were called to the area of King Vaughan Road and Pine Valley Drive for a collision involving two vehicles.
A 56-year-old man, who was driving a Hyundai Accent, was pronounced dead on scene. A 52-year-old woman, who was a passenger in the Hyundai, was transported from the scene to hospital with life-threatening injuries where she later died.
