A Conception Bay South man is dead, following a single vehicle collision Saturday morning near the Salmonier Nature Park.
RCMP Holyrood Detachment and Traffic Services East members responded to the accident on Route 90 at around 7:00 a.m.
Police say the driver, 54, lost control of the vehicle and left the road. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Another man, a passenger in the vehicle, was transported to a medical facility where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries and was later released.
Road conditions were extremely poor at the time of the accident, and the investigation has determined that neither speed, alcohol nor drugs were a factor in the collision.
The name of the deceased is not being released at this time.
