Three people are dead after a head-on crash on Highway 103, two kilometres west of Exit 5 at Tantallon.


Cpl. Joe Taplin of the RCMP wouldn’t release the names or ages of the victims last night.


A fourth person, with serious injuries, was rushed to the QEII hospital on a Life Flight helicopter.


“We’re investigating that one of the vehicles crossed the centre line onto the path way of the other vehicle,” Taplin said.


Both vehicles had two occupants each.

“The RCMP reconstruction analyst is on scene right now,” he said, in a phone interview.

The highway was closed down soon after the crash at 5:42 p.m. and Taplin said he expected the highway to remain closed until midnight.

Nearly a year ago, a crash on the same highway near Blockhouse killed five people — four on motorcycles, and a young mother in a car.
