A 52-year-old man from Allardville, N.B., has died following a single-vehicle crash in the community.
On July 29, 2020, at 2:28 a.m, members of the Bathurst RCMP received a report of mischief in progress at a home on Route 134. Several windows in the home and a vehicle in the driveway were broken. The person believed to be responsible left the scene in a pickup truck before police arrived.
A short time later, a truck matching the description was involved in a single-vehicle collision on Route 134 in Allardville. The driver of the truck died as a result of his injuries on route to the Chaleur Regional Hospital.
Part of Route 134 was closed for several hours, but has since been reopened. An RCMP collision reconstructionist attended the scene and the cause of the crash remains under investigation.
The investigation is ongoing.
