The shutdown occurred after a crash involving a tractor trailer and three other vehicles occurred at about 8:30 am according to Sûreté du Québec spokesperson Nicolas Scholtus.

One of the cars involved was damaged so severely that its driver had to be freed from the wreckage from first responders. While the driver’s condition was initially deemed critical his life now appears to be out of danger.

An accident reconstruction team was deployed at the site, which is located at the junction of eastbound Highways 132 and 20.
