Two injured after truck hits gas station in Lower Sackville

Police in Nova Scotia say two people were injured when a truck crashed into a gas station in the Halifax area Thursday night.

RCMP say multiple calls came in around 5 p.m. local time about a vehicle travelling at a high speed, against the flow of traffic, in the outbound lanes of Highway 101 near Lower Sackville.

Cpl. Dal Hutchinson says several other vehicles were struck or run off the road, including responding officers, before the driver exited the highway at a busy interchange.

Hutchinson says the driver drove a short distance down the Beaverbank Connector, crossed four lanes of traffic, and eventually crashed into an Irving station.

He says one person inside was hurt, but their injuries are not considered life-threatening.

The male driver is in police custody in hospital, but there's no word yet on what charges he may face.

Hutchinson says more details will be released Friday morning.
