RCMP in southern Nova Scotia are investigating after a 60-year-old woman died in a single-vehicle collision in Port L'Hebert on Friday morning.

Queens District RCMP says at approximately 11:45 a.m. on Nov. 5, emergency crews responded to a report of a vehicle collision on East Port L'Hebert Rd.

Police, fire and EHS attended the scene where it was determined that a white station wagon had been travelling on East Port L'Hebert Rd. when it left the road and came to rest in a ditch.

The driver and sole occupant of the station wagon, a 60-year-old Queens County woman, was pronounced dead at the scene.

A collision reconstructionist attended and the investigation is ongoing. East Port L'Hebert Rd. was closed for several hours but has since reopened.
