Funeral for N.B. crash victims set for Tuesday
Cap-Pelé priest remembers teens as hardworking and good friends
CAP-PELÉ, N.B. — Four teenagers who were killed in a highway crash in southeast New Brunswick are being remembered by a Catholic priest as hard working young men who loved life and were good friends.
The four victims, all from Cap-Pelé, died when their car crashed on Route 115 in Notre-Dame early Saturday morning.
Rev. Louis-Joseph Boudreau says Justin Leger, Justin Brown, and Sebastien Leger — all 18 years old — had graduated high school, while 17-year-old Luc Arsenault was to graduate at the end of this school year.
Boudreau says a funeral service for all four young men will be held Tuesday at 3 p.m. at Église de Paroisse Ste. Thérèse D'Avila in Cap-Pelé.
Cap-Pelé is a small Acadian fishing village about 50 kilometres southeast of the site of the crash.
New Brunswick Premier David Alward issued a statement Saturday night extending his condolences to the families.
RCMP say speed was a factor in the crash, but the investigation is ongoing.
