RCMP say one person has died from a three vehicle crash on Highway 104 at Tracadie. Police says emergency responders were called to the scene of the crash at 11 o’clock Friday morning near Exit 37, involving two cars and a transport truck. A 48-year-old Sydney man was airlifted to a Halifax and died later that evening in hospital. He was the only person in that car. The second vehicle had two female occupants who were also transported to hospital with what appeared to be non life threatening injuries. The sole occupant of the transport truck also sustained non life threatening injuries.
Police say a preliminary investigation has shown the transport truck and an automobile were west bound while the car driven by the deceased was eastbound. The Highway was snow packed with white out conditions at the time of the crash. Traffic was re-routed around the scene until 9:30 Friday night. The cause of the crash is being investigated. The name of the driver killed in the crash hasn’t been released.

Antigonish RCMP were involved in a police chase with a driver in Heatherton in late January. The Mounties tried to stop the driver for a minor traffic violation but he fled at a high rate of speed. RCMP did not pursue the vehicle for safety reasons. But the suspect was then seen in the same area driving in the opposite direction. The suspect vehicle approached a police cruiser, the RCMP engaged with defensive driving techniques to avoid a collision. The authorities pursued the vehicle at this time, and the chase ended in Frankville. A 48 year old Frankville man was arrested and charged. Meanwhile, Antigonish RCMP are investigating a suspect for allegedly supplying alcohol to a minor. Police say a 19 year old man is charged for an incident that occurred at a local school.
