A 37-year-old man from Miramichi has died following a two-vehicle collision near Fredericton.

Keswick RCMP were called to a two-vehicle collision between an SUV and a dump truck on Highway 105 in Douglas, around 2 p.m. Wednesday.

Police say the driver and sole occupant of the SUV died at the scene from his injuries while the driver and only occupant of the dump truck was taken to hospital with apparent non-life-threatening injuries.

Members of the Keswick Fire Department, Ambulance New Brunswick, Department of Justice and Public Safety, the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure, and an RCMP Collision Reconstructionist also attended the scene.

A member of the provincial coroner’s office is assisting with the ongoing investigation.

An autopsy will be scheduled to determine the man’s exact cause of death.
