LOUISDALE – An 18-year-old woman from Guysborough died after being air-lifted to hospital following an accident in Richmond County Friday morning. RCMP say the vehicle she was a passenger in left the road and hit a concrete culvert just after 8:30 a.m. The 23-year-old driver sustained serious injuries as well. The vehicle was travelling West on Highway 104 near Louisdale at the time of the collision.
An RCMP Collision Analyst was called to the scene to investigate the cause and there was a detour at Exit 46 for most of the day. The detour slowed traffic but the road remained open.
The investigation is ongoing.
