Aldie Dean plows a section of Trans Canada Highway 104 near Exit 26 on Sunday afternoon. Nova Scotia RCMP advised drivers to remain off the roads unless it was necessary to travel.
Pictou County was hit with another storm causing a number of cancellations and closures on Sunday, while other parts of the province only received rain.
Freezing rain, rain and a short period of snow made driving conditions treacherous throughout the day on Sunday throughout the county, prompting the RCMP to advise motorists to remain inside and off the roads unless necessary.
There were few accidents, although there was a single vehicle MVC in Marshy Hope that caused one lane of that section of the Trans Canada Highway 104 to be closed for approximately three hours.
The transport truck was the lone vehicle involved in the collision. An adult male was the lone occupant and didn’t sustain any injuries.
Pictou County RCMP said the accident was weather related.
