A speeding teen driver has been sentenced to one year in an open custody youth facility followed by six months under community supervision after a crash in Vaughan, Ont. last year that left two siblings, aged four and 10, dead.
The sentencing has sparked outrage among the children’s parents and some members of the community.
The teen, who can only been identified by his initials C.Z. due to his age, was also handed a six-year driving ban and one-year probation after the May 16, 2021 collision on Athabasca Drive.
Jax Chaudhari, 4, and Anaya Chaudhari, 10, were both killed after a speeding 2017 Mercedes-Benz sedan mounted the curb and hit the two children and a neighbour who was helping fix a chain on Anaya’s bike. The children were taken to hospital, where they later died.
