The 17-year-old woman driving the Jeep sustained minor injuries and is co-operating with police, said Sgt. Paul Hayes.

Weather may have been a factor in the crash, although the cause is still under investigation, he added.

Family members told CBC News the victim was Evan Archibald. He was on his way to work, said his sister.

"You don't think you're going to wake up and find your son has died," Karla Drew said in an interview with CBC.
