Car leaves road, 2 teens killed, 3 hurt
SYDNEY, Nova Scotia, Oct. 4 (UPI) -- A single car crash in northeastern Nova Scotia killed two teenagers and injured three others, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said Tuesday.
RCMP Cpl. Ron MacDonald told the Cape Breton Post experts in accident reconstruction were at the scene to try to determine what happened.
"Unfortunately, and very tragically, we've got two people from the area that were killed in this crash," he told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. "A 16-year-old girl was driving, she was killed, and a 14-year-old male passenger was also killed."
The conditions of the other teenage passengers, two females and a male, weren't available Tuesday morning, The (Halifax) Chronicle-Herald said.
MacDonald said a 911 emergency call came in around 8 p.m. Monday about a Mazda MPV crash near Ingonish Beach.
"It went off the road, struck a tree and went over an embankment," he told the Chronicle-Herald, adding it was "a terrible tragedy in a very small community."
