London police have laid charges in the Jan. 18 crash on the campus of Western University that killed 22-year-old Jay Broz and injured two others.
Twenty-three-year-old Elton Sabino of London faces charges of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm, impaired operation of a motor vehicle causing death, impaired operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm, and being a novice driver with a blood/alcohol level above zero.
Sabino had been taken to hospital in critical condition, but has since been upgraded to fair along with a second passenger that was in the car.
Both men remain in hospital.
The violent crash occurred at about 3:25 a.m. after the car Sabino was driving left the pavement of Perth Drive and struck a tree. It came to rest on its side with the roof crushed in.
Broz was pronounced dead at the spot of the collision just 100 metres from the entrance of University Hospital.
Firefighters raced to extricate the other two men in the car, eventually rolling it back onto its wheels and cutting the roof off.
Sabino will have a court appearance sometime in the coming weeks, police said in a media release.
