Wood Buffalo RCMP have laid criminal charges in the deaths of two pedestrians in their 50s last week.
A 48-year-old Fort McMurray man is charged with two counts of dangerous driving causing death, police said in a news release Monday.
The man has been released on cash bail and will appear in Fort McMurray provincial court Sept. 20.
A 52-year-old woman and a 56-year-old man were killed as they crossed a street Wednesday evening in a north-end neighbourhood.
The driver of the vehicle that struck the pair was arrested on scene.
