Hartland-area man dies in Sunday ATV crash

A 46-year-old Hartland-area man died Sunday following an ATV crash on a highway north of Hartland.

Mounties said Tuesday the Western Valley detachment responded at around 1:45 a.m. to a report of an ATV crash on Highway 103 in Connell, N.B., south of Florenceville-Bristol.

Ambulance New Brunswick also attended to the scene.

“The crash is believed to have occurred when the driver of the ATV missed a turn, hit a guardrail and was ejected from the vehicle,” police said in a statement.

“The driver and sole occupant of the ATV died at the scene as a result of his injuries.”

Police say a member of the New Brunswick Coroner’s Office is working with investigators on the investigation.

An autopsy has been scheduled to determine the man’s exact cause of death.
