On June 17, at approximately 3:05 p.m., West Hants District RCMP, fire and EHS, responded to a report of a crash on Hwy. 1 in Newport Station.
RCMP officers learned that a motorcycle had been travelling on Hwy. 1 when it left the road.
The driver and sole rider, a 54-year-old Dartmouth man, passed away at the scene.
A collision reconstructionist attended the location of the crash and the investigation is ongoing.
Hwy. 1, between Wentworth Rd. and Salmon Hole Dam Rd., was closed for several hours; it has since reopened.
Our thoughts are with the victim's family at this difficult time.
