(CNS): A teenager has been charged with two counts of causing death by dangerous driving following a crash that occurred in February this year which claimed the lives of two young men. Police said that 21-year-old Sidney Myles, of George Town and 31-year-old, Bruce Lee Ebanks of West Bay died at the scene of the crash on West Bay Road, near the Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman.

The driver, 19-year-old driver of the car Alexander Callan, has now been charged with two counts of causing death by dangerous driving and has been bailed to appear in court on 17 November. The crash occurred on 29 February after police had attempted to stop the vehicle in which the men died at around 11:30 pm in West Bay.

The car was described by witnesses at the time as travelling at over 100 mph without lights. The pursuit ended when the vehicle left West Bay Road just south of the Ritz-Carlton and hit a pole supporting power lines.

The Cayman Islands fire service had to cut the victims free from the wreck.
