Shediac man killed in weekend motorcycle crash

The New Brunswick RCMP confirmed Sunday a 35-year-old Shediac man died over the weekend in a motorcycle crash northeast of Moncton.

Mounties were called at around 10:40 a.m. Saturday to a single-vehicle collision in Grand Barachois, N.B., about 25 minutes from Moncton.

Fire crews, Ambulance New Brunswick and the New Brunswick Coroners office also attended the scene.

“The driver and sole occupant of the motorcycle died at the scene as a result of his injuries,” said Shediac RCMP Staff Sergeant Martin Janson in a statement.

Police believe the crash occurred when the man lost control of the motorcycle and struck a culvert.

The RCMP says the provincial Coroner’s office is involved with the investigation, adding an autopsy will determine the man’s exact cause of death.
