NCN Mourns Three Young Boys Lost in Accident

On Saturday, April 28, at about 10:30 p.m., three young NCN boys died in a terrible car accident. Kethan Lobster (13 years old), Mattheo Moore and Terrence Spence (both 11 years old) were walking and riding bikes with friends on PR 620 just outside of town when they were hit by a car. All three boys died at the scene of the accident.

The driver, who had passengers in his vehicle, is Todd Norman Linklater. The 27-year-old lives in Nelson House with a young family, and has been found guilty of impaired driving before. He now faces nine charges, including three charges of impaired driving causing death, impaired driving causing death with a blood-alcohol level over the legal limit, and failing to stay at the scene of an accident (An hour and a half after the accident, Linklater turned himself into RCMP.).
