A 54-year-old Yarmouth man has died following a single-vehicle collision in South Ohio, N.S.

The RCMP say the man was travelling north on Hardscratch Road just after noon Wednesday when his truck crossed the intersection with Highway 340 and struck a culvert on the opposite side of the road.

The driver, and sole occupant of the vehicle, died as a result of his injuries.

An RCMP collision reconstructionist has been called in to assist with the investigation.

Investigators are expected to remain on scene until early Wednesday evening.
