Two men from Newfoundland and Labrador are dead following a collision between two pickup trucks Sunday morning on Highway 104 in Nova Scotia’s Pictou County.
The crash involving a 2012 Ford F150 and a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado happened at about 10 a.m. between exits 27 and 29, at Broadway, according to a news release from Pictou County District RCMP.
Police, EHS and Barneys River and District Fire Department responded to the call and found the two people in the Silverado — a 69-year-old driver from Millertown, N.L., and a 61-year-old passenger from Buchans, N.L. — both dead at the scene.
The driver and lone person in the Ford F150, a 61-year-old man from Tantallon, N.S., was transported by LifeFlight to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
Both lanes of the highway were closed to traffic for most of Sunday while investigators worked at the site and reopened in the evening.
The investigation is continuing.
