LEDUC, Alta. - A 36-year-old man from Leduc, Alta., is scheduled to appear in court on July 30 to face charges in a head-on collision last winter that killed two men from Newfoundland and Labrador, and injured two others.

Harold May Jr. and Shawn Briffett, both 37, died Feb. 18 when the taxi van they were in collided with a pickup truck about three kilometres east of the Edmonton International Airport.

A 35-year-old man who was thrown from the taxi was injured, while the 38-year-old taxi driver was taken to hospital with critical injuries.

Bobby Barlett, who was not hurt in the collision, faces charges of impaired driving causing death and bodily harm, as well as dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death and bodily harm.
