Police are investigating after a 37-year-old man died following a two-vehicle collision in Derby Junction, N.B., on Saturday.

Officers responded to the report of the collision, which involved an SUV and pickup truck, on Route 8 between the Anderson Bridge and Williamstown Road around 5 p.m.

Police say the driver and only occupant of the SUV died at the scene due to his injuries.

Police say the five occupants of the truck were transported to the hospital with significant injuries.

Police believe the collision was due to the SUV crossing over the centre line and hitting the pickup truck head-on in the southbound lane.

The investigation is still ongoing with help from the New Brunswick Coroner’s Officer.
