A 17-year-old boy has died following a vehicle collision in Memramcook, N.B., and the Southeast RCMP is asking for the public's help in connection with the incident.
On September 29, 2023, at approximately 1:20 a.m., members of the Sackville RCMP detachment, Dorchester Fire Department and Ambulance New Brunswick responded to a report of a single-vehicle crash on Route 106 in Memramcook. A 17-year-old boy from Moncton, who was a passenger in the vehicle, died at the scene as a result of his injuries. There were no other reported injuries.
The crash is believed to have occurred when the driver lost control of the vehicle, left the road and entered the ditch. Speed is believed to have been a factor in the collision.
Several Specialised Policing Services of the NB RCMP are assisting with the investigation and include, an RCMP Collision Reconstructionist, Forensic Identification Services, the Major Crime Unit, and the Southeast Crime Reduction Unit.
