Police say a 19-year-old man is dead following a head-on collision Monday morning in Williamstown, New Brunswick.

The Northeast District RCMP Blackville Detachment responded to the crash on Highway 8 shortly after 7:30 a.m., according to a news release from Sgt. Brent Johnston.

Police believe a northbound car crossed the centre line and collided with a truck in the southbound lane.

A young man from Gray Rapids, N.B, who was driving the car, died at the scene as a result of his injuries. The man driving the truck was taken to hospital with minor injuries, police say. There were no other occupants in either vehicle.

An RCMP collision reconstructionist attended the scene Monday morning. The investigation is continuing.
