A 68-year-old Nova Scotia woman has died after a collision between three cars in Lunenburg County.

Around 2:15 p.m. Tuesday, Lunenburg RCMP were notified of a motor vehicle collision on Highway 3 near Gold River.

Police, fire crews and paramedics responded and found three damaged vehicles as a result of a head-on collision, according to a release.

The collision involved a car, an SUV, and a truck.

The driver of the SUV, a 68-year-old woman from Marriotts Cove just outside Chester, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said the driver of the truck was taken to hospital for treatment as a precaution, and the car's occupants were uninjured.

A collision reconstructionist attended the scene and the investigation is ongoing.

Highway 3 was closed for almost seven hours and has since reopened.
