Kings District RCMP responded to the single-vehicle collision on Highway 358 near Canard, N.S., on Aug. 31.

A female passenger in her teens died at the scene. An 18-year-old male passenger died in hospital a short time later. Their identities have not been released.

The driver and passenger were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police arrested Stewart in connection with the collision on Sunday.

Stewart was held in custody and was due to appear in Kentville provincial court on Monday.
