A Prince Albert man is accused of being under the influence of drugs at the time of a deadly crash that killed two people and injured two others near the Colonsay potash mine last year.
At the time, officials said a mobility van from Watrous and pickup truck were involved in a head-on crash on Highway 2, east of Colonsay, around 7:20 a.m. on Oct. 25, 2016.
The 69-year-old man driving the van and a 60-year-old male passenger were pronounced dead at the scene.
Another passenger in the van, a 74-year-old man, was taken to Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon by STARS Air Ambulance for treatment. His injuries were not disclosed.
A 30-year-old man driving the pick-up suffered serious injuries and was taken to a Saskatoon hospital by ambulance.
That driver, now 31, was arrested Wednesday morning. David Deagnon is charged with multiple offences including two counts of driving while impaired by drugs causing death and two counts of criminal negligence causing death.
Deagnon was scheduled to appear in Saskatoon Provincial Court Wednesday.
Colonsay is located around 65 kilometres east of Saskatoon.
