A taxi with a driver and two teenagers was travelling on Chemin de la traverse du Moulin in Kedgwick when the driver lost control of the vehicle and collided head-on with a truck. The driver of the taxi, 35-year-old Daniel Raymond and one of his passengers, 17-year-old Mathieu Coulombe died at the scene. The other passenger in the taxi, a 16-year-old boy, sustained serious injuries and was taken to the hospital in Edmundston. He was later airlifted to the Saint John Regional Hospital. The driver of the truck, a 65-year-old man, sustained serious injuries and was also taken to hospital.
An RCMP reconstructionist attended the scene of the crash. The preliminary investigation suggests that speed was a contributing factor to the crash. The investigation is continuing.
