A man is dead after a crash on a Halifax-area highway.

The RCMP say at 3 p.m. Sunday, a 64-year-old man was killed after the vehicle he was driving was hit from behind by a car driven by a 17-year-old boy on Highway 103 between exits 5 and 5A in Upper Tantallon.

The 64-year-old is from Lunenburg County. He died at the scene, police say.

“Initial investigation determined that his vehicle, a 2006 Saturn Ion, was struck from behind by a 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier. Both vehicles were travelling west bound at the time of the collision,” a RCMP statement reads.

The 17-year-old behind the wheel of the Cavalier is also from Lunenburg County and suffered minor injuries.
