Police say a driver arrested in connection with an April crash in North York that left three people dead is now facing new charges.
The deadly collision occurred on April 10 at around 3:30 a.m. near Jane Street and Sheppard Avenue.
Police previously said an Acura was travelling southbound at a high rate of speed when it collided with a Mercedes Benz. The vehicle then lost control, struck another vehicle, hit a light standard and ejected four out of the five occupants of the car.
Three people were pronounced dead at the scene and two others were injured.
Shortly after the collision, a 22-year-old Brampton man, identified as Prithvi Randhawa, was charged with three counts of criminal negligence causing death, one count of criminal negligence causing bodily harm, three counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death and one count of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm.
Const. Clint Stibbe confirmed to CP24 Thursday that the man is now facing three counts of impaired driving causing death, three counts of over 80 mg operation of a motor vehicle, and one count of impaired operation of a motor vehicle by alcohol and drug causing bodily harm.
He is scheduled to appear in court today at 1000 Finch Avenue West at 9 a.m.
