An Ontario man has died following a three vehicle collision Monday morning in the Antigonish area.
At 7:18 a.m., a black car travelling North on Beech Hill Road, stopped at the intersection stop sign, then pulled out onto Highway 4 in front of an eastbound logging truck. The logging truck struck the black car, then struck a blue car that had been waiting to turn left at the same intersection. The driver of the logging truck and the driver of the blue car were not injured. The driver of the black car, a 41-year-old man from Toronto, died at the scene. EHS and volunteer firefighters provided assistance at the scene.
An RCMP Collision Analyst examined the scene for evidence. Police closed Highway 4 in the area and traffic was diverted to South River Road. The investigation is ongoing.
