The RCMP is investigating a collision between a pick-up truck and a motorcycle on the Shediac Road in Moncton that claimed the life of a local man.


The crash happened shortly after 4 p.m. Sunday, according to Staff Sgt. Eric Larose of the Codiac detachment. Police believe a pick-up truck was making a left turn onto Shediac Road when it collided with the motorcycle.

The driver of the motorcycle, a 55-year-old man from Moncton passed away at the scene as a result of his injuries, Larose said. The driver of the pick-up truck was not injured.
