NEWS: New Brunswick Woman Killed by Car After Attending AC/DC Concert

What should have been a great night out for an AC/DC fan turned into tragedy on Saturday (Sept. 5). A woman who attended their concert in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada was killed when she attempted to cross the Trans-Canada Highway and was struck by a car.

Her name was not disclosed by the police, but CTV News have discovered that she was a 22-year old woman from Riverview, New Brunswick named lapointe_0Stephanie Lapointe through a Facebook post by her mother, Nicole Blanchard. “R.I.P., my beautiful baby Stephanie,” it read. “I love you more than words can ever say […] I just want to wake up from this nightmare.”

The report says that Lapointe had gone to the concert with a friend, but they got separated, and, for an unknown reason, she wandered onto the highway. According to Royal Canadian Mounted Police Constable Isabelle Beaulieu, they received the call at 10:15PM and she was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

The Trans-Canada Highway was shut down by the police following the accident. “The road was blocked off to one lane,” Stephen Paul, who attended ambulance-acdcthe concert, said. “Cops were every 100 meters directing traffic, directing them out. Every exit […] was all blocked off. You couldn’t even double-back around.”

Blanchard told CTV that her daughter had been enrolled in a police sciences course in Moncton, with classes beginning tomorrow.

The driver has not yet been identified, but Beaulieu said that it is believed that the car was being driven by a woman. The accident is still under investigation.
