Police in Florida are investigating a multi-vehicle crash that claimed the life of a Nova Scotia man.

St. Petersburg Police say it happened on Sunday evening.

A Hyundai Tucson was trying to turn left from the Pinellas Bayway onto Bahia Del Mar Boulevard South when it collided with a Toyota Corolla in the intersection.

It then hit a stopped Buick Enclave at a stop sign.

Three people in the Hyundai and the Toyota driver were taken to hospital.

The Buick driver was not hurt.

Police say an 89-year-old passenger in the Hyundai, Phillip Rose, later died in hospital.

They did not say what part of the province he was from.
