Shortly after noon on December 26, a single vehicle collision occurred on Hwy. 104 in Crowes Mills in the westbound lanes. A small black truck overturned and came to rest in the ditch, then a fire started in the vehicle. A bystander arrived on scene and extinguished the fire. The driver, an 82-year-old man from Québec, was transported to hospital via LifeFlight with serious injuries.
Highway 104 was reduced to one lane while Colchester District RCMP completed its examination of the scene. The cause of the collision remains under investigation. The highway re-opened late yesterday afternoon.
