RCMP say police received a call about three young people walking westbound along Highway 3 at around 11 p.m. Tuesday night.
Cpl. Robert McDonald says officers patrolled the area but no pedestrians were found although a half hour later, police received another call about a man being hit on Highway 1.
He says a witness reported that four people were walking on the highway when one of them darted across a lane toward the centre grass area.
Police say the driver swerved to try to avoid the young man and a doctor stopped to provide first aid, but the pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene.
McDonald says an 18-year-old woman and two 17-year-old boys were with the man who was killed and that alcohol is believed to be a factor in the tragedy.
