Estrie: a 24-year-old driver seriously injured in a face-to-face

A 24-year-old driver was in critical condition on Saturday evening after colliding with another vehicle on Route 112 near Stukely-Sud, in the Eastern Townships.

The accident occurred around 5:30 p.m., when one of the cars deviated from its lane to hit the vehicle which was coming in the other direction, said Hélène St-Pierre, spokesperson for the Sûreté du Québec (SQ ).

Each driver was alone in their respective vehicle.

The young man was taken to a hospital to treat serious injuries, and there were fears for his life in the early evening. The other driver was also taken to the hospital, but she is said to be out of danger.

Route 112 was closed to traffic to allow a collision investigator to go to the scene and determine the circumstances of the event.
