Just before 10:30 this morning, Halifax District RCMP responded to a 2-vehicle collision on Highway 103 in Upper Tantallon. The collision involved two vehicles travelling in opposite directions. Both drivers were transported to hospital by EHS with non-life threatening injuries. A female passenger in one of the vehicles was transported by EHS to hospital where she was pronounced deceased.
The highway between Exit 5 and 5a will remain closed for several hours while an RCMP Collision Analyst collects evidence at the scene. The investigation is continuing.
Our thoughts are with the victim's family at this difficult time.
