Calgary police say no one will face criminal charges in the deaths of two brothers last month who slid down an Olympic luge-bobsled track.
Twins Jordan and Evan Caldwell, who were 17, were part of a group of eight teens who climbed over a fence at around 1:10 a.m. on Feb. 6 to go on an after-hours run on three plastic sleds.
Police say the teens on the first sled hit a barrier-gate and fell off their sled.
Unaware of what happened, a second group launched down the track and hit one of the teens who had fallen off of the first sled.
The third sled then came down the track and one of the teens on board hit a chain that was across the course.
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner says multiple blunt force trauma was the cause of the deaths and neither drugs or alcohol were believed to have been factors.
