A Leamington man has been charged in a crash that occurred in 2012.

Back on Sunday, February 5, 2012, a single vehicle crash in the area of Coatsworth Road and Herman Line, Tilbury killed two after a car left the roadway, crashed into a ditch and became engulfed in flames.

Two Leamington men died in the collision,  18-year-old Jake Fast and 17-year old Frank Wiebe.

On Wednesday afternoon, after a lengthy investigation, Chatham-Kent Police arrested Johan Bergen Jr, 19 years of Mersea Road 2 in Leamington.

He has been charged with two counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death and two counts of driving with an blood alcohol concentration exceeding the legal limit causing death.

He was released with conditions pending a future court date of June 19, 2013.
