Last night, a young married couple were out on the town for the first time since the birth of their first child. Granny was babysitting.
They were in a taxi heading homewards just before 01:00 this morning when another car crashed into the taxi, allegedly at excessive speed.
The young couple were both pronounced dead at the scene and the taxi driver is very seriously ill in hospital with life threatening head and spinal injuries.
The driver of the other car escaped with bruising, a broken finger and broken nose.
He is 19 years old, has no driving licence, had no insurance and had a blood alcohol level roughly 2.5 times the prescribed limit.
Witnesses said his car was being driven erratically and at estimated speeds of 70mph in a 20mph zone.
The defendant, as they say, said nothing other than to confirm his name and address.
It was a little tense in Court this morning.
