A 48-year-old man is in hospital after a car he was driving crossed into the lane of an oncoming lobster truck on Highway 101.
Cpl. Scott MacRae, a media relations officer with the Halifax RCMP, says the collision occurred shortly before 7:30 a.m. Friday, Nov. 2, between the exits for Hantsport and Falmouth.
“A car travelling westbound appeared to cross left of centre and stuck a lobster truck travelling eastbound. As a result of that impact a third passenger car became involved in the collision.”
MacRae said firefighters were called to the scene to free an individual trapped in a vehicle, but he could not confirm if it was the same man who was rushed to the QEII Hospital in Halifax. All of the drivers involved in the crash were men.
“Any time we have collisions involving cars on our highways, there’s a chance of high impact and injury and, in this case, somebody was injured but it’s believed to be non-life threatening.”
The crash closed the affected section of the highway for a couple hours while Department of Transportation workers and emergency responders cleared the roadway of debris.
