The bodies of four young people whose car plunged into a river in New Brunswick early Saturday morning have been recovered.

Police say the car plunged in the Tracadie River in northeastern New Brunswick after sliding off an icy, unserviced dirt road in the woods.

The victims were 17-year-old Marie-Hélène Gauvin of Pointe Canot, 18-year-old Tommy Losier of Ste-Rose, 19-year-old Brian Basque of Ste-Rose and 20-year-old Alexandre McGraw of Losier Settlement.

Their bodies were discovered inside the vehicle by an RCMP Underwater Recovery Team Saturday afternoon.

An RCMP team is investigating the crash.
