A 60-year-old man died Wednesday afternoon following a collision between an electric bicycle and a large truck in Moncton, N.B.

The Codiac Regional RCMP, Moncton Fire Department and Ambulance New Brunswick responded around 2:20 p.m. to a report of a collision on Connaught Avenue, according to Staff Sgt. Dave MacDonnell.

The cyclist, a 60-year-old man from Moncton, died at the scene as a result of his injuries.  The victim’s name was not released. The driver and sole occupant of the truck was not injured, MacDonnell said.

It had been raining steadily prior to the fatal crash and the roadway was wet. Police have not provided any further information as to how the collision occurred.
