Deadly highways

Two people are dead after two separate, but similar, accidents in the province late yesterday.

A little after 4:00 in the afternoon, a single vehicle accident near Milford sent two people to hospital. RCMP say their car went off Highway 224 in Pine Grove and hit a tree. A man was pronounced dead at hospital and a woman is in critical condition.

About three hours later, a woman’s car went off Highway 217 in Rossway on Digby Neck and hit a tree killing her.

RCMP continue to investigate both accidents.
