Dallas Margret Judd-Rekunyk is accused of impaired driving causing the death of two teens

A 19-year-old woman has been charged in connection with a vehicle crash that resulted in the death of two teenagers in October 2019 near Williams Lake.

Dallas Margret Judd-Rekunyk of Williams Lake faces 15 charges related to impaired operation and dangerous operation of a vehicle causing death and bodily harm.

Autumn Weir, 17, was pronounced dead at the scene and four other occupants were taken to the hospital, one with critical injuries.

Two days later on Monday, Oct. 21, Faith Liberty Unger, 19, died in the hospital.

At the time of the incident, RCMP. Cpl. Madonna Saunderson, district advisory NCO said it was believed alcohol was involved.

Judd-Rekunyk made her first court appearance on Dec. 16, 2020 and subsequently on Jan. 21, Feb. 23 and March 3 for an arraignment hearing.

She was scheduled to appear in Williams Lake Provincial Court on Wednesday, March 10, to fix a date for trial.
