Two Dead, Three Hospitalized After Crash in Northeast New Brunswick

Two people were killed and three others were seriously injured Saturday night in a three-vehicle collision on New Brunswick’s Acadian Peninsula.


Caraquet RCMP say a teenager faces charges in the crash that happened around 8 p.m. on Route 11 in Dugas, near Caraquet.

The preliminary investigation showed that a car occupied by three young men was southbound when it hit the back of a car occupied by a 72- and 57-year-old couple. The couple’s car crossed the centre line and was struck by a northbound SUV. RCMP say the couple died at the scene.

A man, a woman and a girl, who were in the SUV, sustained serious injuries and were transported to hospital. The girl was later airlifted to another hospital in Halifax.

Police say the three young men­-in their late teens or early twenties-were not injured and fled the scene.

Their car was later found, burned, in a gravel pit in the Bertrand area. The teenage driver of that car was later arrested, and will appear in court at a unspecified date.

Route 11 was closed for several hours Saturday night. An RCMP collision reconstructionist was called to the scene. The investigation is ongoing.
