One man is dead and two other people are seriously injured following a single-vehicle collision on Nova Scotia’s Highway 104 Tuesday afternoon.

RCMP say a car was travelling westbound near the Springhill exit shortly after 12:30 p.m. when the driver lost control of the vehicle.

The car then crossed the median and flipped into a ditch.

The driver - a 64-year-old Halifax man - died at the scene.

A 65-year-old passenger from Great Britain was airlifted to a Halifax hospital where he was listed in critical condition.

A second passenger - a 51-year-old Halifax woman - was taken to the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre in nearby Amherst with serious, but non life-threatening injuries.

A section of Highway 104 was shut down for several hours Tuesday afternoon as RCMP investigated the incident. It has since re-opened.
