SASKATOON - A teenage girl and a 21-year-old woman have been charged with numerous counts in a fatal crash involving a stolen truck in Saskatoon.

Police say a stolen pickup sped through a busy intersection Monday night and hit two other vehicles, including a car that was pushed into the wall of a building.

Two 17-year-olds in the car, a boy and a girl, were killed and a 16-year-old girl was seriously hurt.

The parents of the teens who died have consented to their names being reported — they are Sarah Wensley and James (J.P.) Haughey.

Police say Cheyann Chrystal Peeteetuce, 21, faces 14 charges that include impaired driving causing death and criminal negligence causing death.

A 17-year-old girl faces three less-serious charges, including possession of stolen property.

The two, who are both from Saskatoon, were appeared in court Wednesday. They will return Thursday for a bail hearing.
