MILLBROOK –  A senior from Central Onslow died yesterday as a result of a fatal motor vehicle collision.

Colchester District RCMP responded to a 9-1-1 call at 2:36 p.m. Tuesday, reporting a small red truck that was travelling south in the northbound lanes of Hwy. 102 near Millbrook.

Before police arrived on scene, a collision occurred between that truck and another vehicle that had been travelling north. The driver of the truck, a 90 year-old man from Central Onslow, died at the scene. The two occupants of the northbound vehicle were injured and were transported to hospital via ambulance.

Highway 102 was closed in the northbound lanes between the Exit 12 Brookfield to the 102/ 104 interchange for several hours. Traffic was being re-routed. An RCMP collision analyst had been called to the scene to investigate.
