Old Sambro Road crash sends 2 to hospital

Police in Halifax are investigating a crash Monday night that sent two people to hospital.

Police say slippery conditions likely to blame

Police in Halifax are investigating a crash Monday night that sent two people to hospital.

Two vehicles collided at about 10:15 p.m. on the Old Sambro Road.

Investigators said a car driving into the city lost control and hit a pick-up truck, heading out of town.

The woman and man in the car were taken to hospital with injuries that are not considered life-threatening.

The man driving the pick-up was not hurt.

Police said they do not expect to lay charges. They believe the woman driving the car lost control in the icy conditions.

This morning, there are still some slippery spots in the Halifax area, particularly in outlying areas. Some temperatures are hovering near the zero mark, making for a slick drive in some spots. Some highways are still snow covered but passable with caution.
