A collision killed two in Rivière-du-Loup
A head-on collision killed two people at around 13: 30 on Wednesday at the height of the kilometer 96 of the autoroute 85 in Rivière-du-Loup.
Two other people suffered injuries that would not, however, their lives in danger. Firefighters used the jaws of life to remove some of the occupants of the vehicles.
“For a reason that still remains unexplained, one of the two vehicles involved would have ended up in the opposite direction of the highway and then enter into a head-on collision with another vehicle travelling north, says the information officer of the Sûreté du Québec, Claude Denis. It was asked, on the premises, a reconstructionist at the scene of collisions to investigate and try to understand the totality of the circumstances of this collision.”
The identity of the victims will be unveiled Thursday.
