News release

The RCMP are investigating a fatal motor vehicle collision that occurred on Route 1 in Pownal, on November 18th, 2019.

The victim, a 56 year-old Mount Albion man, PEI, passed away as a result of his injuries. The man was walking along the TransCanada, Route 1, in Pownal when he was struck by a pickup truck.

RCMP are continuing their investigation into the collision. While early indications are that neither alcohol nor drugs were a contributing factor, it is possible that wet roads and a very dark night may led to poor visibility which may have been a contributing factor.

Thoughts are with the family of the deceased at this difficult time.
