When emergency personnel arrived on the scene, the victim, a 20-year-old man from Sussex, had already passed away as a result of his injuries. He was the driver and lone occupant of the vehicle. It appears he was not wearing his seat belt and was ejected from his vehicle. His vehicle was found smashed and on it’s roof near a broken utility pole.
An RCMP re-constructionist was on scene investigating the collision. It is believed that not wearing a seat belt, alcohol and speed may have been contributing factors.
The name of the deceased will not be released at the request of his family.
