28 year old man dead following head-on collision on Highway 11

A 28-year-old man from Miramichi is dead following a head-on collision on Highway 11 between Turgeon Road in Belledune and Jacquet River on Tuesday, January 17th.

RCMP Sgt. Benoit Jolette says the man was pronounced dead at the scene and that two other individuals were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Jolette says black ice and an accumulation of snow at the time of the collision may have been a contributing factor, but adds the investigation is still on-going.

The highway has been reopened.
