He incurred apparent non-life-threatening injury and was transported to hospital. A 56-year-old man from New Brunswick, the passenger in the blue pickup also incurred apparent non-life-threatening injury and was transported by EHS to hospital. The driver of the blue pickup, a 54-year-old New Brunswick man, did not appear injured. Two occupants, both women from New Brunswick in the SUV, did not appear injured.
