14-year-old New Brunswick girl succumbs to injuries sustained in crash

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. Another 14-year-old girl was also airlifted to hospital in Halifax and is believed to be in stable condition. An 18-year-old male, who was the driver of the vehicle, was also taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

The Saint-Quentin RCMP responded to the crash and the preliminary investigation indicates that speed may have been a contributing factor when the car left the road and rolled several times.
