Cape Breton Post - - PROVINCE -

VAN­COU­VER — A crim­i­nal charge has been laid against a young man who Van­cou­ver police al­lege was trav­el­ling at 250 kilo­me­tres per hour be­fore he crashed his par­ents new Mercedes. Const. Brian Mon­tague says crash in­ves­ti­ga­tors be­lieve the man, who was then 18 years old, was go­ing at five times the speed limit. The crash hap­pened April 12, 2015, at about 3 a.m. and Mon­tague says the fact that both the driver and pas­sen­ger weren’t killed was noth­ing more than a fluke. He says the driver was rel­a­tively un­harmed, but the 17-year-old male pas­sen­ger had ex­ten­sive head and fa­cial in­juries and bro­ken bones. Yue Hui Wang, who’s now 19, was ar­rested when he ar­rived at Van­cou­ver’s air­port from China and has been charged with crim­i­nal neg­li­gence caus­ing bod­ily harm.
