RCMP is looking for a possible witness to a fatal collision in Coles Island.

The crash involving a car and a pickup truck occurred on September 17th near the intersection of Route 10 and Bagdad Road.

A 24-year-old man died in hospital the next day.

Based on information gathered through the investigation, a man in his 40s stopped to check on the two occupants in the car.

“At this time, we don’t have any information to suggest criminality,” says Cpl. Mark Ward with the Sussex RCMP. “We do, however, need to establish the sequence of events so we can determine the cause of the collision as part of our investigation.”

Police are also interested in speaking with anyone who may have been near the intersection of Route 10 and Bagdad Road on the afternoon of September 17, that may have been driving in the area with dashcam footage, as well as nearby businesses or homes that may have surveillance footage.

If you have information that could help further the investigation, please contact the Sussex RCMP at 506-433-7700. Information can also be provided anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477,  or by Secure Web Tips at www.crimenb.ca.
