The Bonavista RCMP is investigating a single-vehicle fatal crash that occurred Tuesday morning in King’s Cove and claimed the life of a 25-year-old man.
RCMP officers received a report of the accident at 1:45 a.m. Upon arrival, officers found a car on its roof in a ditch, the RCMP stated in a news release.
The sole occupant of the vehicle was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected during the crash, and died at the scene, police said.
A collision reconstructionist with RCMP traffic services was called to the scene and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner is engaged. The investigation is continuing to determine what factor, if any, alcohol had in the crash.
