by Michael Lee

A man has died after a fatal vehicle collision involving a tractor trailer on Highway 103.

Lunenburg District RCMP were called to the scene of a two-vehicle collision in Hebb's Cross at about 8:20 p.m. Sunday evening on October 1.

An initial investigation has determined that the deceased, a 50-year-old man from Chelsea, was travelling west in a car when he crossed the centre line at the intersection of Conquerall Road and Highway 103, coming into the path of an eastbound truck.

When police arrived on scene, the RCMP say they located a severely damaged small car and a tractor trailer rolled over onto its side.

"Our thoughts are with the victim's family at this difficult time," the RCMP said in a news release.

The driver of the truck was not injured, but EHS transported a female passenger in the truck to hospital to be treated for minor injures. The RCMP did not say which hospital she was transported to.

The highway was closed leading into Monday morning and traffic was re-routed south of Highway 103 through Conquerall Mills.

The RCMP said the highway would reopen at 9:30 a.m.

This is the second vehicle collision that has occurred at the Camperdown Road and Highway 103 intersection in recent weeks.

A silver SUV and a white van were involved in a two-vehicle accident on the morning of September 19, resulting in the female driver of the SUV to be trapped briefly and taken to hospital.
