Collision claims second life

At 7:20 p.m. last evening, Halifax District RCMP responded to a motor vehicle collision on Hwy 2 at Abilene Ave. in Wellington. A 15-year-old female, who was an occupant in a 2004 Ford Focus, was transported by EHS Lifeflight to the IWK with serious injuries where she later passed away.

An 87-year-old man, who was the lone occupant in a 2005 Chevrolet Impala, died at the scene.

The second vehicle, a Ford Focus, was occupied by four youth. The driver, a 19-year-old male, was transported to the QEII by EHS LifeFlight with serious injuries. A 13-year-old female was transported to the IWK with non-life threatening injuries. A 19-year-old male was transported by EHS to the Dartmouth General Hospital with minor injuries.

An RCMP collision analyst attended the scene to examine it for evidence. The road remained closed for several hours. The investigation into the cause of the collision is ongoing.

Our thoughts are with the victims family during this very difficult time.
