Plymouth's Luke McCormick released on bail after being arrested over crash killing 2 boys

Plymouth Argyle goalkeeper Luke McCormick was released on bail Monday after facing in court the mother of two boys who died in a highway crash.
McCormick's Range Rover was involved in a collision with a Toyota Previa minivan about 5:45 a.m. (0445 GMT) Saturday on the M6 highway in Staffordshire, central England.
At Fenton magistrates' court, McCormick heard charges of causing death by dangerous driving, driving with excess alcohol and driving without insurance.
McCormick was given seven days' conditional bail and will appear next Monday at Stoke Crown Court. He entered no plea.
Inside the Stoke courtroom a weeping Amanda Peak clutched a photograph of her sons Arron Peak, 10, and Ben Peak, 8.
The dead boys' 37-year-old father sustained a suspected broken neck and back. Three other people in the same vehicle were unharmed.
The 24-year-old McCormick, a former England youth international, plays in English football's second-tier League Championship. He was not injured in the accident.
