A 58-year-old cyclist from Halifax has died following a crash on a Nova Scotia highway.

West Hants District RCMP, Walton Fire, and EHS responded to a report of the collision involving an SUV and a pedestrian on Highway 215 in Pembroke on Saturday at around 2:45 p.m.

Officers were told the car and bike collided as the cyclist was trying to cross the road.
