At 2:21 a.m. today, a woman walked into the Twin Oaks Hospital on Hwy. 7. She was disoriented and had a cut on her face. Staff was unable to get much information from her about what had happened, so the RCMP was contacted.
Police determined quickly that the woman had been a passenger in a collision that occurred a short time earlier near the hospital on Hwy. 7. The single vehicle that had been involved in the collision crossed the road into the oncoming lane and struck a pole. The male driver, a 24-year-old man from Head of Jeddore, died at the scene. The female passenger was transferred to hospital in Dartmouth for further treatment.
An RCMP Collision Analyst was called to examine the scene for evidence. Hwy. 7 is closed in the area and is expected to re-open at approximately 10 a.m.
