This morning, December 16, just before 1 a.m., Lunenburg District RCMP, fire and EHS responded to a report of a two-vehicle collision on Hwy. 103 in East River.
Upon arrival at the scene, RCMP officers learned that a Suzuki SX4 travelling westbound veered over the centre-line and collided head on with a Ford F150 that was travelling eastbound. The collision occurred near Exit 7, Hwy. 103, East River.
The driver and sole occupant of the Suzuki, a 63-year-old man from Musquodoboit Harbour, was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The lone passenger of the Ford, a 52-year-old Dartmouth man, suffered serious, non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the Ford, a 60-year-old East Preston man, was not physically injured.
An RCMP collision reconstructionist attended the location of the collision and the investigation is ongoing.
Highway 103 was closed for several hours and has since reopened.
Our thoughts are with the victim’s loved ones as this difficult time.
