Australian tourist kills California couple in their 80s while driving the wrong way, authorities say

An Australian man has been charged in the deaths of a California married couple in their 80s last week, when he allegedly collided with their car while driving on the wrong side of the road. 

Luke Nardini, 31, has pleaded not guilty to two counts of vehicular manslaughter in the Sept. 1 deaths of Jack and Linda Davis, both 80. 

San Mateo County prosecutors allege Nardini was driving a BMW M4 at around 5 p.m., when he moved onto the wrong side of the roadway after encountering a road closure, FOX San Francisco reported. 

Nardini is being held at the San Mateo County jail on $20,000 bail. His next court date is Sept. 11. The Sydney Morning Herald reported he was supposed to return to Australia after a three-week trip to the U.S.  

Fox News Digital has reached out to Nardini’s attorney, whose office declined to comment on the case.
