WESTCHESTER - A 26-year-old Dartmouth man was airlifted to hospital in Halifax with significant injuries after being involved in a two-vehicle accident on the Trans Canada Highway Monday.


Just after 3 p.m., RCMP from North Traffic Services in Oxford and Amherst responded to the collision just west of Exit 8 near Westchester.

The man had to be extracted from a badly damaged vehicle with the Jaws of Life by the Oxford and Westchester fire departments.

Both vehicles involved were traveling west when one vehicle rear-ended the other.

Traffic in both directions of the highway was re-routed while LifeFlight was on scene. Those traveling west were diverted at Exit 8, and those traveling east were diverted at Exit 7.

The RCMP Oxford detachment is investigating the collision and no determination has been made regarding any criminal charges.
