A driver accused of causing the deaths of two passengers in a crash near the Ramsey Forty Foot has been remanded in custody after an appearance at Peterborough Crown Court.
Ionut-Cosmin Curut, 21, faces two charges of causing death by careless driving following an incident in which a silver Mazda 6 car left Puddock Road and ran into a waterway adjacent to the road.
Curut, of Sutton Road, Spalding, spoke only to confirm his identity when he made a brief appearance before Judge Sean Enright today (Friday).
He wore a grey sweatshirt and was assisted by a Romanian interpreter.
Currut is accused of causing the deaths of Ilze Dobele, 46, of New Road, Spalding, and Ingrida Dudeniene, 47, of Spring Gardens, Spalding, by careless driving on October 13.
