Man dies following single-vehicle crash in Welsford

A 33-year-old man from Ontario, who had recently been living in Oromocto, has died following a single-vehicle crash in Welsford.

The Grand Bay-Westfield RCMP responded to the scene on Highway 7 at Exit 63 shortly before 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

Police say it's believed the vehicle failed to negotiate the exit and overturned in the ditch, and the driver died at the scene.

The RCMP say the car had been spotted driving at a high rate of speed prior to the crash and an officer tried to follow, but lost sight of the car.

Shortly after, the 911 call came in about the vehicle in question.
