The Service de police de Laval (SPL) confirmed the death of the 37-year-old woman who was hit by a vehicle when crossing Cartier Boulevard on the evening of Dec. 6.
The victim was crossing the boulevard to get to that terminus of the same name before being hit by a vehicle travelling east. At that time, she was transported to a hospital within minutes of the incident, and the SPL said they “feared for her life”.
The driver, in her 40s, was treated for a nervous shock.
That incident occurred less than two hours, after another collision between a vehicle and a pedestrian happened in Auteuil. The victim was travelling from east to west, at 7656 des Laurentides Boulevard, which is located between Riopelle and Rémillard streets.
“Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) maneuvers were attempted when help arrived, but the death of the victim was confirmed on the spot,” confirmed the Service de police de Laval (SPL) spokesperson, Stéphanie Beshara, following the incident. “The victim was a 61-year-old man.”
For both cases, the SPL favoured the thesis of accidental events. (N.P.)
