A young man died as a result of the accident.
A fatal accident occurred shortly before 6 a.m. Thursday morning on Route 155 in Saint-Léonard-d'Aston. The victim is a 21-year-old man from the Capitale-Nationale region, according to the Sûreté du Québec (SQ).
A vehicle traveling southbound deviated from its lane and collided with another vehicle at the height of the Nicolet River, indicates the SQ.
The hypothesis favored by the police is that he fell asleep at the wheel.
Part of the road is closed to traffic in both directions and is expected to reopen late morning.
The two drivers, who were alone in their vehicle, were transported to a hospital. We do not fear for the life of the other person.

The types of vehicles involved in the head-on collision are a pick-up truck and a car.
An SQ investigator specializing in collision scene will be on site.
