Teen dies in Iqaluit accident

By NUNATSIAQ NEWS

Iqaluit RCMP are investigating a single motor-vehicle accident that claimed the life of a 16-year-old male delivery driver and sent his 15-year-old passenger to hospital with serious injures on Aug. 19.

As of press-time, police had not released names of either youth until their families and extended families were notified.

The two teens were driving on the Apex Road near the Telesat station at 6:30 p.m. when the car went off the road. The car rolled several times before stopping, said Const. Chris Coles.

“It appears neither of them were wearing seatbelts which would have been a contributing factor,” Coles said.
