Two drivers -- including a woman from Porters Lake -- were killed in a head-on collision in Prince Edward Island on Friday night.


The accident claimed the lives of Andrea Hughes, 42, of Porters Lake, and Sean MacIntosh, 43, of Meadowbank, P.E.I. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.


The two were both alone in their vehicles when the accident occurred. RCMP said a car with Nova Scotia plates was travelling toward the Confederation Bridge when it collided with a sport utility vehicle, adding it appears speed was a factor in the accident.
