A 28-year-old man from Miramichi is dead after a head-on crash in northeastern New Brunswick.

Mounties say it happened on Highway 11 between Belledune and Jacquet River on Tuesday morning.

Jolette says black ice and snowfall may have been factors in the crash, but adds the investigation is still ongoing.
