This morning at 2:20 a.m., a Kings District RCMP member was on patrol on Middle Dike Rd. in North Kentville when he observed a vehicle driving erratically. The member activated his lights and sirens, and turned around to attempt to stop the vehicle. As the member got closer to the vehicle, it accelerated through an intersection and lost control, striking a cement retaining wall.
The two occupants in the crashed vehicle were taken to Valley Regional Hospital. The driver was later pronounced deceased. The passenger sustained non life-threatening injuries.
The RCMP has referred the incident to Nova Scotia SiRT. Given the matter is now being investigated by SiRT, the RCMP is not able to disclose any further details.
