N.B. RCMP investigating ‘sudden death’ at border crossing
The New Brunswick RCMP is investigating a sudden death on the Canadian side of the St. Croix crossing Sunday evening.
Just after 7 p.m., officers with the West District RCMP responded to an incident at the border that connects St. Croix to Vanceboro, Maine.
The crossing is about 10 kilometres away from McAdam.
“The person involved was a 76-year-old man from Quebec,” says Const. Isabelle Beaulieu. “It’s an ongoing investigation surrounding the man’s death.”
The Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) redirected traffic for about four and a half hours during the incident, which tied up the crossing on a busy holiday weekend.
Police say they don’t believe the death was suspicious and do not believe anyone else was involved.
At this point, they’re not releasing the cause of death or if the man was in a vehicle at the time.
