RCMP has con­firmed that a 33-year-old woman is dead af­ter a sin­gle-ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dent near Roddickton Tues­day evening, Oct. 2.

The Roddickton-Bide Arm RCMP de­tach­ment re­sponded to the ac­ci­dent around 8 p.m.

Po­lice say the ve­hi­cle had left an em­bank­ment on route 433 near the Conche turnoff.

Three peo­ple were aboard the ve­hi­cle when they ar­rived.

All three oc­cu­pants were trans­ported to the near­est med­i­cal clinic in Roddickton. Po­lice say one of the oc­cu­pants later suc­cumbed to her in­juries.

The two other pa­tients were trans­ferred to the hos­pi­tal in St. An­thony. Their in­juries are not be­lieved to be life-threat­en­ing.

The high­way was closed for ap­prox­i­mately 90 min­utes Wed­nes­day morn­ing due to the ac­ci­dent.

Last week, an RCMP traf­fic an­a­lyst was on the scene to as­sist the lo­cal de­tach­ment in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion will in­clude an ex­am­i­na­tion of whether or not seat belts were worn.
