Police have charged two more people with the manslaughter of two teenage girls who died in a car crash on Christmas Day.

Merepeka Morehu Clark, who was 14, and her 13-year-old sister Brooklyn Morehu Clark, were killed after two cars collided on Welcome Bay Road in Tauranga.

A 17-year-old man and a 36-year-old woman, both from Tauranga, have been arrested and will appear in the District Court there on Saturday.

Earlier this week, a 20-year-old Auckland man appeared in court on the same charges.

He was remanded in custody and will reappear in court next week.
