The event occurred around 2 a.m. Saturday morning, at the Ultramar gas station located at the corner of rue Labelle and avenue Royale, in the Beauport sector.
The driver was traveling at high speed on rue Labelle in a northerly direction before turning sharply towards the first series of gas pumps at the service station.
The latter had time to back up and rush her vehicle towards a second series of pumps before the authorities intervened.
“The SUV then overturned, while there was a presence of smoke and gasoline on the ground. The police had to smash a window of the vehicle to extricate the lady, ”explains Marie-Pier Rivard, of the SPVQ.
It would be a voluntary gesture.
The gas station involved in the case posted on Facebook that four of its six dispensers were destroyed. It will not be possible to fill up with diesel there for a while.
