A 19-year-old man from Adamsville, New Brunswick, died Sunday night following a single-vehicle crash in Shediac Cape.

Members of the Shediac RCMP, Shediac Fire Department and Ambulance New Brunswick responded around 10:30 p.m. to a single-vehicle crash on Route 134, according to Corporal Gabriel Deveau.

There were three people in the car when it went out of control and rolled over into a ditch. Police say a 19-year-old man from Adamsville, who was a passenger, died at the scene as a result of his injuries.

An 18-year-old man from Kent County, who was also a passenger of the vehicle, was not injured. The driver of the car, a 19-year-old man also from Kent County, was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Deveau said.
