RCMP investigating what caused Johnny Thibodeau's vehicle to leave road, end up in ditch
A 36-year-old man has died following a single vehicle crash in Benoit, near Tracadie-Sheila, over the weekend.
Johnny Thibodeau, of Tilley Road, was driving along Chemin Benoit when his vehicle left the road, struck a culvert, rolled over and landed on its roof in a ditch, say RCMP.
A motorist travelling along the road saw the vehicle in the ditch and called police on Sunday at about 5:35 a.m., Cpl. Stéphane Blanchard stated in a release.
It's unclear when the accident occurred.
Thibodeau died as a result of the injuries he sustained, said Blanchard.
RCMP are trying to determine what may have caused the crash with the help of a collision reconstructionist.
