Plymouth goalkeeper Luke McCormick charged over crash killing 2 boys

Plymouth Argyle goalkeeper Luke McCormick was charged with causing death by dangerous driving, police said Sunday, a day after two children were killed when his car collided with a minivan.
McCormick, 24, was also charged with driving under the influence and driving without insurance after the highway accident in Staffordshire, central England, on Saturday morning. Arron Peak, 10, and his eight-year-old brother Ben Peak were killed in the crash.
England's Central Motorway Police division said McCormick remained in custody and would appear in Fenton Court, Stoke-on-Trent, at 10 a.m. (0900 GMT) Monday.
McCormick's Range Rover hit a Toyota Previa about 5:45 a.m. (0445GMT) Saturday on the M6 highway.
The dead boys' 37-year-old father was in serious but stable condition. Three other people in the vehicle were unharmed.
McCormick, who plays in English football's second-tier League Championship, was not injured in the accident.
