Two people from New Brunswick were killed in a motorcycle accident in Florida Thursday just before 3 p.m.

Gilles Michaud lost control of his motorcycle when he tried to enter a U.S. highway, say police in Largo.

Michaud struck a raised median that separates the highway from another road.

Michaud and his passenger Mona Dube were taken to hospital, where they were pronounced dead.

Police say alcohol doesn't appear to be a factor in the crash.            

The accident remains under investigation.
