Police say a 64-year-old man has died following a single-vehicle crash Tuesday on the Trans-Canada Highway near Salisbury, New Brunswick.

The Southeast District RCMP responded to the crash around noontime, according to Sgt. Chantal Ouellette.

When officers arrived, they found a car had gone through the guardrail less than 2 kilometres from the commercial vehicle scales. The car was found flipped over, down a steep embankment off the eastbound lanes, Ouellette stated.

The driver, who was from Petitcodiac, died at the scene. Police say no one else was involved in the crash.

There was a light covering of snow on the highway at the time.

RCMP are still trying to determine how long the car was there before it was discovered. The investigation is continuing.
