A single-vehicle crash in central New Brunswick has claimed the lives of three teenage boys. 

The RCMP says the car was travelling north on Main Street in Blackville shortly before 2:30 a.m. Sunday, when it went off the road and struck a retaining wall. 

Police say all three occupants were ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene. 

The victims have been identified as a 16-year-old and 17-year-old from Blackville and a 17-year-old from nearby White Rapids, N.B. 

The principal at Blackville School says two of the boys were in Grade 12 and the other had just graduated in June.
