ATV collision takes life of man

RCMP release:

Cumberland County District RCMP is investigating a fatal collision that occurred in River Hebert.

On June 27, just after 9:00 a.m., Cumberland County District RCMP, along with fire, responded to a report of an ATV collision in the 1500-block of Barronsfield Rd. Officers located a Can-Am side-by-side in the ditch. The driver and sole-occupant, a 55-year-old man from River Hebert, was found deceased nearby.

Initial investigation suggests the man was ejected from the side-by-side.

The road was closed for several hours as a collision reconstructionist attended the scene. Cumberland County District RCMP continue to investigate, with the assistance of the Nova Scotia Medical Examiner Service.

Our thoughts are with the victim’s family at this difficult time.
