Fatal collision claims man's life

East Hants RCMP say a 27-year-old man from Hants County is dead after a single vehicle collision in Noel Shore.

Officers responded to the accident on Highway 215 at 4:32 p.m. on Friday.

RCMP say the initial investigation determined the vehicle left the road, and travelled alongside the ditch for several meters before landing on its roof.

Police say the man, from Tennecape, Hants County, who was the lone occupant of the vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene.

An RCMP Collision Analyst attended the scene and the road remained closed for several hours, but has since re-opened.

The investigation is on-going and police are asking anyone with information to contact them.
