City youngster admits to deaths

ESPN staff

A Manchester City youth player has admitted to causing the deaths of a brother and sister as a result of careless driving.

Courtney Meppen-Walter, 18, was arrested in September after his Mercedes was involved in a crash with a Nissan Micra in Manchester.

Kulwant Singh, 32, from Salford - the Nissan driver - and his sister Ravel Kaur, 37, from Cheetham Hill - a front-seat passenger - died from the crash.

Ms Kaur's two sons, aged 16 and 17, were sitting in the back of the car and picked up injuries in the crash, which took place on the evening of September 1 on Great Ducie Street.

Meppen-Walter, of Middleton Road, Blackley, admitted the charges on Thursday at Manchester Magistrates' Court.

The City man was told by magistrates that his case was too serious for them to sentence him, and he will instead be sentenced by a judge at Manchester Crown Court on February 28.
