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.
