Dangerous driving incident in East Hants leads to road closure

The RCMP say Highway 14 in Upper Nine Mile River had to be closed Tuesday evening as the result of a dangerous driver.

The Mounties received a report of a dangerous driver, and when police encountered the vehicle, the driver failed to stop.

A police pursuit came to an end when the suspect vehicle went off the road.

The driver, who was the only person in the vehicle, is in police custody.

The Mounties say the driver was taken to hospital in Truro to be examined.

There are reports the road has reopened, but there is no confirmation from RCMP.
