Annapolis District RCMP, with assistance from an RCMP traffic reconstructionist, are investigating a two-vehicle collision that occurred on Highway 101 near mile marker 176 in Spa Springs.
Shortly before 10:30 p.m. on Friday, an RCMP member was patrolling the highway between exits 17 and 18 when he discovered two vehicles in the ditch as a result of a collision.
The lone occupant of the westbound vehicle, a 42-year-old male from Cambridge, was pronounced deceased at the scene. The lone occupant of the eastbound vehicle, a 57-year-old male from Mount Uniacke, was extracted from his vehicle but later died from his injuries.
Preliminary investigation has determined this was a head-on collision. The cause remains under investigation.
The highway was closed while the investigation was conducted at the scene and reopened at 10:00 a.m. this morning.
Our thoughts are with both victims’ families at this difficult time.
