The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC) Accident Investigation Section is seeking the assistance of the public in relation to a fatal motor vehicle collision in the area of Major’s Path and Portugal Cove Road in St. John’s Saturday.
Around 8:40 p.m., officers from RNC patrol services along with paramedics from Eastern Health and firefighters from St. John’s Regional Fire Department responded to a report of a two-vehicle collision on the Outer Ring Road in area of the intersection of Major’s Path and Portugal Cove Road.
