Preliminary investigation reveals that a car travelling east towards Cocagne lost control while negotiating a curve, crossed the centre line and collided head-on with a minivan. Fire and ambulance were on scene and the driver of the eastbound vehicle, a 54-year-old man from Grande-Digue, was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver and passenger of the minivan were not injured. It is not believed the victim was wearing a seatbelt.
An RCMP collision reconstructionist was on scene and the investigation is ongoing.
