A 60-year-old rests between life and death after losing control of his vehicle early Saturday morning in Laval.
The swerve took place around 4:40 a.m. on Highway 440, at the height of Montée Saint-François. According to the first information from the Sûreté du Québec (SQ), the man would have, following a malaise, lost control of his vehicle and ended his race in the low wall of the central reservation.
"The individual was transported to a hospital center, where he is still in critical condition," said Catherine Bernard, spokesperson for the SQ, in an interview with the QMI Agency.
A police officer specializing in collision investigation was requested on site to analyze the scene and try to determine the exact circumstances of this exit from the road, it was added. Long blocked in the morning, Highway 440 was reopened to traffic around 7:30 a.m.
