A 20-year-old man charged with killing his friend in a car accident in Dwellingup on April 8 appeared in court on Friday.

Ashley Charles Vincent did not enter a plea in the Mandurah Magistrates Court for allegedly driving with a blood alcohol limit exceeding .08 grams and dangerous driving resulting in death.

Mr Vincent was remanded on bail to reappear in court on August 17.

At the time of the incident, police alleged a ute rolled over on Nanga Road, throwing two 18-year-old men from the rear tray onto a gravel road. 

One man received fatal injuries from the incident and died at the scene.

The driver and the second passenger received minor injuries and were treated by medical staff, police reported.
