RCMP say a cyclist from Halifax was fatally struck by a vehicle yesterday afternoon in Pembroke. 

RCMP say at 2:45 p.m. on Sept. 17, first responders arrived on the scene of an incident involving a vehicle and a pedestrian on Highway 215. 

Officers determined the SUV travelling southwest struck the cyclist who was travelling in the opposite direction and attempting to cross the roadway. 

The cyclist was a 58-year-old man from Halifax and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Mounties say the SUV driver, a 64-year-old man from Pembroke, was displaying signs of impairment and was arrested at the scene. 

Highway 215 was closed for several hours while a collision analyst was on the scene, but the highway has since been reopened. 

RCMP say the investigation is ongoing.
