A teen has died and another has been arrested after an all-terrain vehicle crash in northern New Brunswick.

Emergency crews were called to the scene on Route 11 near Beresford around 10:20 p.m. Friday, according to the RCMP.

“The collision is believed to have occurred when one of the drivers lost control of the all-terrain vehicle and collided with the other one,” Mounties said in a news release on Saturday.

The driver of the first ATV was treated at the scene for minor injuries. The passenger, a 15-year-old boy from the Bathurst region, died at the scene.

Police said the driver of the second ATV was rushed to the hospital with what are believed to be serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

“The driver of the first ATV, a 15-year-old youth, was arrested on scene and later released,” said the release.

The teen is scheduled to appear in court in September. No details have been released about what charges they could be facing.
