A Shelburne County man is dead after being struck by a vehicle Thursday. RCMP say just before 7 last night, three people were attempting to cross Highway 3 in Barrington Passage. One of them, a 75-year-old man from Barrington Passage, crossed the road and was struck by an oncoming vehicle. He died at the scene. Cpl. Jennifer Clarke says that section of highway has a high volume of traffic. "There are a lot of businesses in that area." Cpl. Clarke says EHS attended but were not able to resuscitate him. No one else was hurt. An RCMP Traffic Analyst attended the scene to conduct an investigation. One lane of Highway 3 was closed for several hours but has since been re-opened.
