A 22-year-old Richmond man has pled guilty to two counts of operating a motor vehicle with a blood/alcohol level above .08 causing death, in connection with a deadly crash in May of 2012.

Ryan Jeffrey Webster entered a guilty plea in Richmond provincial court on Tuesday and is scheduled to return to court on Nov. 4 for a pre-sentencing report.

Webster was 20 at the time he was driving a 2006 BMW 325i with Shane Moses, 19, and his little brother Jess, who were passengers.

The BMW slammed into a tree on a twisty-section of No. 4 Road, south of Steveston Highway, killing both brothers.

Webster held a Class 7 driver's licence at the time of the crash, which permitted him to carry only one passenger, and didn't allow him to consume any alcohol.

Neither Crown counsel Gerri-Lynn Nelson nor Webster's lawyer could be reached for comment Friday morning.
