Police responded to the crash on Route 11 at around 8:15 p.m., according to Sgt. Patrick Tardif of the Richibucto Detachment.

Apparently, the car was northbound when it crossed the centre line and collided with the truck.

A 52-year-old man from Red Bank, New Brunswick passed away as a result of his injuries, Tardif said. The driver of the transport truck sustained minor injuries.

Route 11 was closed to traffic for several hours Thursday night, and an RCMP collision reconstructionist attended the scene.

The investigation into the cause of the fatal crash is ongoing.
