The driver, a 22-year-old man, was also taken to hospital after the car ended up on its roof.

The debris trail from the accident was 850 metres — about a kilometre long.

Police confirmed this week that the passenger who died was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash. The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary said it wanted to share that information with the public to help spread the word about seatbelt safety.
