HALIFAX – One man is dead after his vehicle veered off the road for unknown reasons in Timberlea.

Cpl. Jadie Spence with Tantallon RCMP said the crash happened around 3:45 p.m. on Thursday in front of 1643 St. Margaret’s Bay Road.

“The car hit the fences [in front of the house] and kept going and flipped over,” Spence said.

“The driver was ejected and was found in the driveway on somebody’s property.”

Spence said the man, who is from Halifax but has not been identified, died at the scene.

Traffic analysts spent time marking points of interest on the road and snapping pictures of the crash.

There’s no word on why the vehicle left the road. The male victim was the only person in the car.

Spence said it is too early to tell whether drugs, alcohol or speed played a factor in the incident.

Police said there was some damage to the fences beside the house. No one was inside the house at the time.

Several blocks of St. Margaret’s Bay Road were shut down for a few hours while emergency crews attended to the scene. It was re-opened around 7 p.m.
