One person is dead and two others taken to hospital with relatively minor injuries following a three vehicle collision on the Veteran’s Memorial Highway earlier this afternoon.
RCMP were called just after 2:30 to an area about a quarter of a kilometre south of the North River turnoff.
Police say the 42-year-old female driver of one of the vehicles succumbed at the scene.
RCMP are investigating the cause of the head-on collision.
Veterans Memorial Highway has since reopened.
