A young man was killed and another was injured following a single-vehicle crash in Shediac Cape on Sunday night.

Cpl. Brian Villers with the Shediac RCMP said emergency personnel responded to the crash on Route 134 shortly after 10 p.m.

“The call came in as a vehicle in a ditch on its roof,” said Villers. “There were two occupants, and the deceased was the passenger.”

The person who died was a 19-year-old from Adamsville.

Police are still investigating the cause of the crash, though Villers said impairment by alcohol is believed to be a factor.

The driver, also 19, was transported to hospital by ambulance with non-life-threatening injuries. An 18-year-old who was also a passenger was not injured.
