Investigators believe the driver lost control of the vehicle and rolled into the northbound ditch, ejecting four passengers who were not wearing seatbelts. The male driver, 22, was wearing his seatbelt and was not injured in the crash. 

A 21 year-old male passenger died on scene while a 20 year-old female was rushed to UHNBC hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

The remaining two passengers, both 19 year-old females, suffered minor injuries. Alcohol is believed to have been involved.

This criminal investigation is in its beginning stages. Once more info is released we’ll update.
