Ontario Provincial Police say a North Bay is charged with careless driving, following a fatal motor vehicle crash last month that killed two people from Greater Sudbury.

On June 7, OPP were called to a collision on Highway 17 within the Municipality of Markstay-Warren involving two passenger vehicles and one motorcycle.

Police said the eastbound car crossed the centre line, striking a SUV travelling in the opposite direction. The car then hit a motorcycle carrying two people.

Both people on the motorcycle, Alain Lacoursiere, 48, and Kerrie Leblanc, 48, both of Val Caron, died on scene.

Police have charged John Hemmingway with careless driving of a motor vehicle contrary to the Highway Traffic Act.

Hemmingway will appear in court in Sudbury on July 28.
