Cape Breton Post - - CAPE BRETON -

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.
