A 77-year-old man from South Esk, N.B., has died following a single-vehicle crash, according to the RCMP.
In a release, police said members of the Sunny Corner RCMP responded to a report of a single-vehicle crash on Route 420 in the community.
“Police believe the vehicle was driving eastbound when it veered off the road and into a ditch, where it collided with a concrete culvert,” the release said. “The driver and lone occupant of the vehicle died at the scene.”
The RCMP believe alcohol may have been a factor in the crash and an autopsy has been scheduled to determine the exact cause of death.
The release said the investigation is ongoing.
