At approximately 5:27 p.m. last evening, police were called to a single-vehicle crash on Hwy. 1 in Marshalltown.
The RCMP, Fire and EHS attended the scene and found an automobile in the ditch with extensive damage. The driver, a 42-year-old woman from Digby was ejected from the vehicle. EHS transported her to hospital and was later pronounced deceased early this morning. There were no passengers in the vehicle.
A collision re-constructionist attended the scene and the investigation is ongoing.
Highway 1 was closed in both directions and has since reopened.
Our thoughts are with the victims' families at this difficult time.
