RCMP say a 17-year-old boy is dead after a single-vehicle crash on Sooke Road Friday night.
Police report the driver lost control of the car, a red Acura, near Parkland Road around 10:45pm. The car went off the road and flipped over in a wooded area, trapping the passenger inside.
When police arrived, they found the male driver injured but outside the car. Firefighters and paramedics tried to save the passenger’s life, but he died at the scene.
The driver was taken to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
RCMP are investigating the cause of the single vehicle crash, and the BC Coroners Service is also investigating.
