A 39-year-old man from Pleasant Grove and a 44-year-old man from Stratford, have died following a single-vehicle crash in Pleasant Grove, P.E.I.

On May 19 at approximately 7 p.m., members of the Queens District RCMP, the North Shore Fire Department and Island EMS responded to a single-vehicle collision on Route 220 in Pleasant Grove, in central P.E.I.
