The New Brunswick RCMP confirmed Saturday morning that a 47-year-old man died following a snowmobile crash in the northern part of the province.
Emergency crews, which included the Campbellton RCMP, the Upsalquitch Fire Department and Ambulance New Brunswick, responded at around 5:15 p.m. Friday to a trail near Mann Road.
“The crash is believed to have occurred when the driver of the snowmobile, who was the sole occupant, lost control of his vehicle, left the trail and struck several trees,” said Cpl. Raphael Vézina in a news release.
Police say the 47-year-old man, of Janeville, N.B., near Bathurst, died at the scene from his injuries.
A member of the New Brunswick Coroner’s office who attended the scene is assisting with the ongoing investigation into what may have caused the crash.
