METRO HALIFAX -
Nova Scotia RCMP say four international students attending St. Francis Xavier University and one graduate have been taken to hospital after a single-vehicle crash near Truro.
Cpl. Scott MacRae says the car was travelling north on Highway 102 when it left the road around 11:30 p.m. Sept. 19.
MacRae says the vehicle rolled several times and ejected two passengers before coming to rest in the southbound lane.
He says a 20-year-old woman was airlifted to a Halifax hospital in critical condition.
Four others, two men and two women, were taken to Colchester Regional Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and are expected to be released soon.
MacRae says a section of the highway was closed for several hours as police investigated.
The university released a statement Sept. 20.
“As members of the StFX family, our concerns are first and foremost for the well being of our students, their friends, and the families involved,” said Sheila Sears, director of health and counseling at the university.
“We are committed to keeping the StFX campus community informed and will post updates as they become available.”
