A 31-YEAR-OLD man has been remanded in custody accused of causing the death of a father and son in an M62 crash as they headed for a family holiday.
Gary Proctor, 47, and his son James, 16, from Wakefield, died in hospital after their Fiat Punto was in collision with an Audi on the M62 near Rochdale on Sunday.
Imran Hussain, of Bradford, is said to have ploughed into the back of their vehicle as they travelled to Manchester Airport for a flight to Florida.
Hussain is accused of causing their deaths by dangerous driving.
He is also charged with being more than twice over the legal drink-drive limit and making threats to kill against a female BP petrol station attendant in Leeds.
The father-of-four spoke only to confirm his name, address and date of birth when he appeared at Rochdale Magistrates’ Court.
Mr Proctor’s wife and James’s mother, Catherine, 44, was seriously injured in the crash. She is in a stable condition in hospital being treated for broken ribs and a broken arm.
Hussain will appear before Bolton Crown Court for a plea hearing on October 21.
