A 25-year-old New Brunswick man is dead after a multi-vehicle collision on the Trans-Canada Highway near Kinnear Settlement, a village about 50 kilometres outside of Moncton.

In a media release, police said first responders arrived on the scene at about 7 p.m. on Tuesday, when it was determined that a truck was travelling west on the highway and lost control after blowing a tire leading the driver to cross over into oncoming traffic and collide with a vehicle travelling eastbound.

The impact of the collision affected two other vehicles.

“A separate collision occurred shortly after when one of the truck tires hit the windshield of another vehicle travelling eastbound,” police said.

“In total, four vehicles were involved.”
