A woman, 67, from Chester was involved in the August 8 head-on collision on Highway 103 in Upper Tantallon, according to Nova Scotia RCMP. She was transported by EHS to hospital with non-life threatening injuries following the accident.
One person died in the crash between the 2013 Honda CRV the Chester woman was driving and a 2015 Chrysler.
The driver of the latter car, a 62-year-old man, was transported by EHS to hospital with non-life threatening injuries, but a 63 year-old woman who was a passenger died in the accident. Both the man and woman were from Ontario.
The fatal collision took place just before 10:30 a.m. on August 8.
Highway 103, between Exits 5 and 5a, remained closed until shortly after 7 p.m. last night while an RCMP Collision Analyst collected evidence at the scene. The closure of the exits snarled traffic for miles, backing up cars at Exits 4 and 5 and causing long lines of traffic along Hammonds Plains Road and the St. Margaret's Bay Road, among others.
The investigation is continuing.
