A third person has been charged in connection with a crash into a group of cyclists in New Hampshire over the weekend that killed two women from Massachusetts.

Nineteen-year-old Scott Martin of Seabrook is facing a charge of allowing 19-year-old Darriean Hess to drive his car without a license.

Hess, ordered held on $50,000 bail, was arraigned Wednesday via video from jail. She's charged with negligent homicide.

Forty-eight-year-old Cindy Sheppard of Hampton is charged with selling a painkiller to Hess and allowing her to drive without a license.

Police say Hess was driving too fast and without a license when she ran into the cyclists on an annual ride in Hampton on Saturday. Two riders died and two were injured.
