One man is dead after a crash involving a single car on St. Margarets Bay Road on Thursday afternoon.

The male driver, who was the only person in the car, died at the scene after emergency officials got there at 3:43 p.m.

"The vehicle was inbound towards Halifax on the Bay Road," said Staff Sgt. Amy Matchett.

She said the car was "weaving in the lane and crossed over and flipped over" and the driver was ejected from the car.

The road is closed between Beechville and the Timberlea Village Parkway area. Matchett said the road would be closed until at least 7 p.m.

The cause of the collision remains under investigation. An RCMP traffic analyst has been called in to assist with the investigation.
