**Updated at 9:29 a.m.**

The RCMP say the driver of an SUV was killed in a two-vehicle collision on Highway 102 in Shubenacadie.

Police say their initial investigation indicated a southbound SUV lost control, crossed the median, and collided with a northbound dump truck.

The incident happened just before 9 a.m. yesterday and forced the closure of the highway to northbound traffic between Exits 9 and 10 until around 6:20 p.m. last night.

One southbound lane was also closed for several hours while an RCMP Collision Analyst was on scene.

The RCMP say they're working with the Nova Scotia Medical Examiner Service to identify the woman.

The driver of the dump truck was not injured.
