Fatal ATV crash claims life of Tilley Road man, 37
RCMP say slippery road conditions, alcohol could have been factors in crash
A 37-year-old man from Tilley Road, N.B.is dead after crashing an ATV Saturday morning.
Tracadie-Sheila RCMP said officers were called to the crash on Chemin de la Promenade, within the old Tracadie-Sheila military training area shortly before 8:30 a.m. Saturday.
Investigators believe the crash happened when the driver, 37-year-old Marcel McLaughlin, lost control of the ATV, left the road and ended up in the ditch.
He was trapped under the vehicle and died at the scene.
The investigation into the crash continues but investigators said slippery conditions on the dirt road and alcohol may have been factors in the crash.
RCMP are reminding all motorists that as the temperature drops, road conditions could become slippery. Drivers are also reminded to watch their speed and drive according to road conditions.
