Driver charged over deaths of two women

A man has been charged with dangerous driving over the death of two of his passengers in NSW three months ago.

The single-vehicle crash on the Pacific Highway at Cudgera Creek, north of Byron Bay, in the early hours of August 13 killed two women, aged 64 and 46.

The 47-year-old driver and a 14-year-old boy were taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

The driver was charged on Tuesday with two counts of dangerous driving occasioning death and negligent driving occasioning death.

He was granted bail in Tweed Heads Local Court and will appear before the court again on January 17.
