N.S. RCMP investigating fatal crash near Windsor

One person is dead and another in hospital with life-threatening injuries after a two-vehicle, head-on collision on a rural road near Windsor, N.S.

RCMP responded to the crash on Avondale Road in Poplar Grove just after 7 a.m. Tuesday.

Police say one man was confirmed dead at the scene and a second man sustained life-threatening injuries and was airlifted to hospital in Halifax.

Halifax District RCMP spokesman Cpl. Dal Hutchinson said Mounties are investigating, but it’s too early to determine what caused the accident.

"We do have an RCMP collision analyst on scene and they‘re there collecting evidence,” Hutchinson said.

Avondale Road was closed at Ferry Road most of the day as police investigated.
