News release


A 20-year-old woman, a 23-year-old man and a 24-year-old man, all from the Bathurst region, have died following a two-vehicle collision in Moncton, N.B.

On March 31, 2024, at approximately 1:30 a.m., members of the Codiac Regional RCMP, Ambulance New Brunswick and Moncton Fire Department responded to a report of a head-on collision between a car and a sports utility vehicle (SUV) at a traffic circle in Moncton.

The collision is believed to have occurred when the car, travelling eastbound, entered the traffic circle travelling westbound and collided head-on with the SUV.

The driver and two occupants of the car died at the scene as a result of their injuries. A fourth individual, also a passenger of the car, was transported to hospital with what are believed to be life-threatening injuries.

The driver and three passengers of the SUV were treated for minor injuries at the scene.

An RCMP collision reconstructionist and a member from the New Brunswick Coroner's Office attended the scene and are assisting with the investigation. Justice and Public Safety Officers also attended the scene.

The four occupants of the car were not believed to be wearing seatbelts at the time of the collision. Autopsies have been scheduled to determine the exact cause of death for the three deceased individuals.

The eastbound lane of Wheeler Boulevard at the traffic circle was closed for several hours but has since reopened.

The investigation is ongoing.
