The driver of a car involved in a fatal crash that killed two young brothers has been charged with causing their deaths.
Ryan Jeffrey Webster, aged 20 at the time, was behind the wheel of a BMW when it spun off the road near Steveston Highway and No. 4 Road and hit a tree in May 2012.
Webster sustained minor injuries, while his two passengers that fateful night — Shane and Jess Moses, age 19 and 16 — died instantly.
On Monday morning, Richmond RCMP announced that, after an extensive investigation, Webster has now been charged with two counts of impaired driving causing death and two counts of operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol level over 0.8 causing death.
Webster had a class 7 driver’s license at the time. He is set to appear in court Nov. 28.
In the days following the tragedy, tributes poured in on a Facebook page for the two young brothers and many students at the brothers’ school, McNair secondary, wore black out of respect for their popular friends.
