A 34-year-old man died at the scene while another 29-year-old man didn't survive the rush to hospital.
Two other 31-year-old passengers, both males, were taken to the John Hunter Hospital with minor injuries.
The driver will appear at Raymond Terrace Local on June 4th to face two counts of drive manner dangerous; dangerous driving occasioning death; cause bodily harm by misconduct in charge of motor vehicle and negligent driving occasioning death.
