Accident claims life

A 76-year old man died in a car accident in this small community in P.E.I.'s Prince County Monday morning.

Police are witholding his name until his next of kin have been notified.

They said the car went off the road. However they said it's still too early to tell whether road conditions played a part in the accident.

Prince Edward Island received its first snowfall of the season Monday, and roads were slippery in some places.

It was the second serious accident in P.E.I. in less than 48 hours.

A 27-year old man is in critical condition in hospital after his car left the road and hit a culvert near Hamilton Saturday evening.

His name has not been released.

Police continue to investigate both accidents.
