Windsor District RCMP is investigating a fatal motor vehicle collision on Bog Rd.
Just prior to 1 a.m. this morning, RCMP responded to a single motor vehicle collision involving four occupants. As a result of the collision, a 22-year-old man who was a passenger in the vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene. Two female passengers – a 16-year-old and a 20-year-old – were transported to Valley Regional Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the vehicle, a 25-year-old man from Hants County, fled the scene prior to RCMP arrival and was arrested without incident around 9 a.m. Charges are pending in relation to this collision.
Windsor District RCMP, RCMP Police Dog Services, an RCMP Collision Analyst, EHS, the Windsor Fire Department, the Hantsport Fire Department and Nova Scotia Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal attended the scene. The road will remain closed for a period of time. Our thoughts are with the victim's family at this difficult time.
The investigation is continuing.
