Bond was denied Wednesday for a former northwest suburban man charged in a hit-and-run crash in Florida that killed two people.

Ryan LeVin, 35, is facing charges of vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of accident.

Fort Lauderdale police say that in February, 2009 he was driving a Porche at a high rate of speed and lost control. The car went on a sidewalk and hit two men. Both were tourists from Great Britain. Their deaths sparked international outrage.

Levin, who grew up in Barrington and is formerly of Hoffman Estates, has denied he was driving the car.
