A Bedfordshire Police car, from file

Police Constable Kerry Smith, 24, has been charged with two counts of causing death by dangerous driving over a crash last year in Luton, UK. PC Smith was based in the town at the time and works for Bedfordshire Police.

Smith is accused in the June 4 deaths of Reda Lecheheb and Sidali Melal on Leagrave Road. Both were pedestrians.

The crash was investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC). The IPCC said yesterday that Smith will appear before St Albans Magistrates' Court on February 9.
