Man killed in accident in Inverness County
PORT HASTINGS — One man is dead following a single-vehicle crash on a remote Inverness County road. According to RCMP, the car was travelling along a private road early Wednesday afternoon when it collided with a large equipment trailer that was parked along the access road to Georgia Pacific’s Sugar Camp gypsum quarry. The force of the collision re- sulted in the vehicle being lodged underneath the stationary trailer. The car’s lone occupant, a male driver, was pronounced dead at the scene. “The accident analyst is still on the scene and until he finishes his investigation there is not much more we can add,” said Cpl. John Landry of the Inverness RCMP. The crash scene is located south of the Trans-Canada Highway, about 15 kilometres northeast of Port Hastings. The fatality comes just four days after an ultralight plane crash near Middle River claimed the life of 54-year-old Norman Overdijk.
