A 67-year-old man from New Brunswick died Monday afternoon in a single vehicle crash in Meadowbank, just west of Charlottetown.

RCMP say it appears the man was trying to pass another vehicle on Route 19 when he lost control of his car on the crest of a hill.

He was ejected from the vehicle. RCMP said speed and lack of seat belt use were likely contributing factors in the fatality.

The man's name has not yet been released.
