Grief and condolences are being shared with the family of Carter Navarrete, after friends and family identified 17-year-old boy as the victim in a fatal single-car crash on Sooke Road Friday night.
The teen was a passenger in a car that flipped over, trapping him inside. Paramedics tried to save his life but he passed away on scene. The driver was taken to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
The Victoria Grizzlies hockey team paid tribute to the teen, being described as a talented young player with the Sooke Thunderbirds, before their pre-season game in Sooke Saturday night.
