Charges have been laid in connection with the January collision that claimed the lives of two Guelph children.

Evan Lodge, 12, and his sister Amanda were killed when their mini van collided with a vehicle being driven by a 17-year-old Cambridge teen on Jan. 31 as they were returning from a skiing outing.

A third child, Alyssa, was seriously hurt and mom Susan, the fourth person in the vehicle, escaped injury.

Waterloo Regional Police Service reported Thursday that the driver of the 2018 Toyota RAV4 that struck the Lodge van was arrested and charged with two counts of dangerous operation of a conveyance causing death, dangerous operation of a conveyance causing bodily harm and dangerous operation of a conveyance.

The incident happened at the intersection of Spragues Road at Shouldice Side Road in North Dumfries, just outside Cambridge.

Shortly after the two vehicles collided, a 2020 Land Rover, being operated by a 56-year-old Cambridge male, collided with the two vehicles at the intersection.
