At approximately 12:37 p.m. yesterday afternoon, police were notified of a collision on the Hwy. 204. in West Leicester.
Cumberland County District RCMP, Fire and EHS attended the scene and found a car struck a utility pole. The driver and lone occupant, a 27-year-old woman from Sackville, New Brunswick was pronounced deceased at the scene.
A collision re-constructionist attended the scene and the investigation is ongoing. The highway was closed for several hours and has since reopened.
Our thoughts are with the victim’s family at this difficult time.
