One woman was airlifted to the QEII Hospital Saturday with serious injuries following a two-vehicle collision on Highway 101 near Falmouth March 29.

An additional two women were transported to hospital with what were believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.

While early in their investigation, RCMP Const. Jason Hill said that the car accident involved two Mazdas that were travelling between Falmouth and Hantsport.

“We believe at this point that the Mazda that was travelling eastbound must have lost control, swerved into the westbound lane and went head on with the other Mazda,” said Hill.

The collision, which occurred along the section of highway that is untwinned, happened around 3:35 p.m.

It was the driver of the eastbound Mazda who was airlifted to Halifax. The two other women who were taken to the hospital were travelling in the westbound vehicle. The condition of all three women is unknown at present.

Hill said they are still investigating the accident and encourages anyone who may have witnessed it to contact the Windsor Rural RCMP (798-2207) as soon as possible.

The highway reopened to traffic around 7 p.m.
