< p class="e-p">It is a vehicle traveling in a northerly direction. For a reason that remains to be determined, the vehicle would have slowly deviated from its lane to lightly hit a first vehicle, then hit a second, but more violently, explains the sergeant in the communications department of the Sûreté du Québec, Hélène St. -Pierre.
The road was closed for nearly 5 hours, to allow a police officer specializing in collision investigation to come to the scene and analyze the scene, adds the Sergeant Hélène St-Pierre.
