A 28 year old Markham man is facing charges after a crash in the city last August, that claimed the lives of a mother and daughter.
York Regional Police say that on Monday, August 29th, at around 9:40 a.m., officers responded to a two-vehicle collision on 16th Avenue, east of Bur Oak Avenue.
They arrived on scene to find a black Toyota Corolla and a black Infinity G35 had collided east of the intersection.
The 42 year old female driver of the Toyota Corolla and her four year old daughter were transported to hospital were they both died of their injuries.
The driver of the Infinity and his one year old daughter were treated for minor injuries.
Investigators have now determined that alcohol was a contributing factor to the collision and on October 20th, the driver of the Infinity was arrested.
Christopher Singh of Markham has now been charged with two counts each of impaired driving causing death, driving with a blood-alcohol level over 80 milligrams causing death, and dangerous driving causing death.
He is scheduled to appear in court in Newmarket on November 10th.
