From CBC Ottawa:
An 18-year-old man is facing dangerous driving and criminal negligence charges after a June crash that left two young women dead and another seriously injured.
Ottawa police determined that Chris Galletta of Ottawa lost control of the black Chevrolet Cobalt he was driving as he was trying to pass another vehicle.
Many people are jumping to conclusions about what happened the night of the crash, said Galletta’s lawyer Mark Ertel.
“(Galletta) is looking forward to getting a chance to proving he hasn’t done anything wrong,” Ertel said. “And when the thing goes to court and the full story comes out, people who jumped to conclusions are going to be surprised about what the real story is about what happened that night.”
“He feels terrible about what happened to his friends and any kind of criminal activity would be totally out of character for him,” said Ertel.
Galletta’s next court appearance is scheduled for Aug. 15.
