Man, 48, dies after vehicle leaves road in Hammonds Plains
A man has died after he was thrown from a van when it rolled into a ditch in Hammonds Plains, N.S., late Sunday afternoon.

The 48-year-old driver from Windsor Junction was the only person in the vehicle. He died at the scene.

Cpl. Dal Hutchinson with Halifax District RCMP said weather and poor road conditions weren't a factor. Investigators are still trying to determine what caused the van to veer off the road and onto its side. 

A collision analyst was called in to collect evidence from the scene and the police investigation is ongoing.

"With the ejection part of it, that's always an indication that a seatbelt wasn't used," Hutchinson said. "So that's something that our investigators will look at further."

Police say it appears the 2004 GMC Savana van left the road and rolled over in a ditch. The driver was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.

Police got the call around 4:30 p.m. and closed an area of Viscount Run for several hours as they investigated.
