A 17-year-old boy died early Wednesday following a single-vehicle crash in Cocagne, along the coast of eastern New Brunswick.

Members of the Richibucto RCMP, Cocagne Fire Department, and Ambulance New Brunswick, responded to the crash on Route 535 shortly after 1 a.m., according to Cpl. Eric Friel of the Richibucto Detachment.

Police believe the driver, a 17-year-old boy from Dixon Point, N.B., lost control of the vehicle and it went off the road and rolled over. The teen, who was alone in the vehicle, was ejected. He was transported to a local hospital, where he later died as a result of medical distress, Cpl. Friel said.

An RCMP collision reconstructionist is assisting with the ongoing investigation. An autopsy has been scheduled to determine the boy's exact cause of death.

Police say the cause of the crash remains under investigation. We'll have more information as it becomes available.
