A 27-year-old King's County man is dead after a vehicle left the road in Murray River, P.E.I., Monday morning.

RCMP Sgt. Shaun Coady said police were called to the scene by a passing motorist at about 7:30 a.m. Coady said the car left the road on Route 4, between routes 24 and 17, and crashed into a wooded area.

"The driver of the vehicle suffered serious injuries and died at the scene," he said.

"We're trying to determine any factors that may have come into play to cause the vehicle to leave the roadway, whether speed was a factor or whether there was some other element involved."

The driver was alone in the car.

An RCMP collision reconstructionist and a member of the PEI Coroner's office are assisting with the ongoing investigation.
