Research had been underway since Sunday afternoon to try to locate the vehicle in the river. It is not yet known if the conductor is inside or if the current would have carried away the body. Voluntary gesture or discomfort, all the hypotheses are still plausible.
For the moment, the maneuvers are not easy in the river, in particular because of the strong current. However, the river is free of ice.
Around 3 p.m. Sunday, a person called 911 to report that a vehicle had sunk into the river.
Since then, police and firefighters have worked hard to try to find the famous vehicle, as well as to determine if anyone was on board, explained Hélène St-Pierre, spokesperson for the Sûreté du Québec. (SQ).
According to information collected by the SQ on Sunday evening, there could actually be a person who was on board when leaving the road.
The vehicle would have traveled on 156th Street, then crossed Lambert Street and finally sank into the Chaudière River.
In addition to the search on the water, neighborhood inquiries were underway to try to find out more about the vehicle that disappeared under the waves.
