Saint-Quentin, New Brunswick – A 14-year-old girl from Saint-Léonard died in hospital in Halifax on August 15, 2017 as a result of injuries sustained in a single vehicle crash on August 11 in Saint-Quentin.
She was one of three people in a vehicle that left Chemin Labrie at around 7:45 p.m. on August 11.
