A 43-year-old man was killed and two others were seriously injured in a single-vehicle crash early Saturday morning in Salisbury.
The Caledonia RCMP, Salisbury Fire Rescue and Ambulance New Brunswick responded around 5:00 a.m. to a report of a car that had crashed on Fredericton Road. Investigators believe the driver lost control of the car, which went off the roadway and crashed into the woods.
