“The crash is believed to have occurred when the male driver of the SUV, travelling southbound on Clarence Ridge Road, lost control, causing the vehicle to roll over several times,” the New Brunswick RCMP said in a news release. “A 27-year-old woman from Johnson Settlement, N.B., died at the scene as a result of her injuries.”
Police say four other passengers were taken to hospital with what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.
