Halifax Regional Police have identified the victim of Sunday night's fatal vehicle crash in Dartmouth, and say the other two passengers in the car have turned themselves into police.

 

David Alexander Julien, a 15-year-old from Dartmouth, was pronounced dead at the scene after police say the car he was a passenger in struck a utility pole at about 10 p.m. on the 100 block of Cranberry Crescent in the east end of Dartmouth.

 

Julien was a student at Prince Andrew High School.

 

Police also say the driver and other passenger of the car, who witnesses say fled the scene after the accident, turned themselves into police at 11:45 a.m. this morning. Both are aged 18.

 

Police say the car had New Brunswick licence plates, but was not believed to be stolen.


Speed is considered a factor in the crash as police are trying to determine the connection between a complaint of a vehicle of the same description driving recklessly in the neighbourhood last evening and the crash.
