A 20-year-old man, a passenger in a vehicle, died early this morning when the vehicle he was in lost control and rolled over an embankment on Griffin Drive near Water Street in Corner Brook.

The RNC says speed is considered to be a factor.

The male driver and a female passenger were transported to Western Memorial Regional Hospital with injuries believed to be non-life threatening.

The accident occurred about 1:15 a.m.

Officers from RNC patrol services, advanced collision analyst and forensic identification services, along with paramedics from Reliable Ambulance and firefighters from the Corner Brook Fire Department, responded to the scene where the vehicle was found on its roof.

The identity of the deceased is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

The RNC has closed Griffin Drive to through traffic between Water Street and Barrett’s Road to enable Collision Analysts and Forensic Identification units to conduct a thorough examination of the scene. The RNC is advising the travelling public to use alternate routes in this area until the roadway is reopened later today.

    This is my very best friend grandson. How can you (the media) do this? Your have no respect for anything or anyone only sensationalism. Those are young people who call me aunt. They are trying to stop this here. You are a utter disgrace! We are all in pain now. I've always said the media is a heartless bunch of people and this is one perfect example. My friend in Toronto lost her son and while his wife was breast feed her baby she saw it on T.V.. When is this going to stop? Newpaper are more like tabloids those days. One time it was a respectable position, not any more!

    Here we go again. Shame on you The Telegram Editors for publishing pictures from and accident scene which has claimed a life less that 12 hours ago. Your story states the name will not be released pending notification of next of kin yet you are publishing these pictures. What is one of these family members who has yet to be notified sees and identifies the vehicle in this pictures? I bet you would feel differently if it were one of your family members. Yes I agree with reporting but spare these poor families by publishing pictures of the scene. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of those involved in this horrific accident.
