New Brunswick RCMP say a 33-year-old Miramichi man died following a single-vehicle accident involving an all-terrain vehicle early Thursday morning.
In a statement, police said members of the Sunny Corner RCMP, Sunny Corner Fire Department and Ambulance New Brunswick responded to a report of an ATV accident on Highway 430 in Trout Brook around 3 a.m. Thursday.
“The driver and sole occupant of the ATV died at the scene from his injuries,” the statement said.
“The accident is believed to have occurred when the ATV, which was rolling on the pavement, left the road, hit a number of trees and overturned.”
The cause of the accident remains under investigation.
A member of the New Brunswick Coroner’s Office attended the scene and is participating in the ongoing investigation. An autopsy will be scheduled to determine the exact cause of the victim’s death.
