1 dead in motorcycle-car crash in western Newfoundland

A collision between a motorcycle and a car in the town of Rose Blanche on Newfoundland's west coast has resulted in the death of a man from Prince Edward Island.

A spokesman for the RCMP said the motorcycle driver cut the corner of a blind turn and swerved into oncoming traffic.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The victim's name is being withheld until next of kin are notified.

The driver of the car was not injured.

The accident occurred just before 6 p.m. NT Saturday.

Police say alcohol doesn't appear to be a factor and there are no charges anticipated.
