A Bondi real estate agent has been hit with a new charge after she allegedly withheld information from police about a deadly street racing crash that killed two young brothers.

Raquel Marie Borg, 24, was allegedly in an Audi driven by Adam Yurun on August 25 last year when she was caught on CCTV racing in the street against a car driven by Jimmy Martin Brito.

Competing cars reportedly reached speeds of more than 130km/h in 60km/h residential zones along The Grand Parade in Monterey, south of Sydney.

Police allege the men were racing when Brito lost control of his Subaru and crashed into a pole, killing his nephews Peter Abreu, 9, and Xavier Abreu, 10.

Mrs. Borg allegedly witnessed the fatal accident, but did not stop or speak to police until she was arrested weeks later. She was charged with concealing a felony.

A second charge was laid against the estate agent in Sydney’s Downing Center Local Court on Thursday.

His lawyer Samuel Shenouda confirmed that both charges had been certified.

Court documents reveal the 24-year-old is accused of failing to notify police after seeing the fatal crash despite knowing reckless driving had caused her death.

Police allege she withheld information that would have helped arrest and prosecute Mr Yurun for manslaughter and dangerous driving causing death.

Ms. Borg has not pleaded guilty to any of the concealment charges.

Magistrate Clare Farnan adjourned the matter for two months to allow the parties to hold a conference on the case.

Police allege a deadly street race between Yurun and Brito began at 9.30pm on August 25, 2023, when the men met in La Perouse, in Sydney’s east.

About 20 minutes later, Brito allegedly lost control of his car and crossed two lanes onto the wrong side of the road before crashing into a pole.

Chilling surveillance videos taken from homes along the highway reveal the moment the car leaves the road and becomes trapped around a tree.

The impact was so strong that the engine of Brito’s car flew off the hood and landed several meters away.

His two nephews died, while a nine-year-old girl escaped with minor injuries.

Police allege that Ms. Borg and Mr. Yurun saw the fatal crash but did not stop to help or notify police.

Yurun has been charged with two counts of manslaughter, two counts of aggravated dangerous driving resulting in death, organizing races between vehicles and two counts of failing to stop and render assistance after impact resulting in death.

Mr Brito has been charged with two counts of dangerous driving causing death, two counts of aggravated dangerous driving causing death at a speed of more than 45 km/h over the speed limit and one count of causing bodily injury due to misconduct.

Both men remain before the courts.
