**Updated** Cyclist killed in Highway 104 crash

Police say a 57-year-old cyclist is dead after colliding with a truck on Nova Scotia's Highway 104.

RCMP Cpl. Jennifer Clarke said it happened near the Auld's Cove entrance to the Canso Causeway just before 3 p.m. Saturday.

Clarke said the male cyclist, who was from nearby Port Hawkesbury, died at the scene; no one else was hurt.

Highway 104 was closed between Auld's Cove and Port Hastings for about six hours as police investigated.

Local media reports say the fire halls in Auld's Cove and Port Hastings opened as comfort centres to those who were waiting for the road to reopen.

Clarke said the cause of the crash remains under investigation.
