RCMP are investigating a fatal crash that occurred last evening in West Inglisville near Lawrencetown.
At approximately 11:30 p.m., Annapolis County RCMP and local emergency personnel responded to a single vehicle crash on Trout Lake Road.

There were five people in the vehicle, two females and two males, 21 to 24 years of age. The driver, a 23-year- old male from Dartmouth, was pronounced dead at the scene. A passerby assisted the passengers to get out of the vehicle as the car had caught on fire. The police and emergency officials arrived within minutes and were able to extinguish the fire.
