A woman in her 60s lost control of her SUV before crashing into three other vehicles in the parking lot of the Adonis supermarket, located on Des Aristocrates Avenue, in Duvernay.
The incident took place around 11:38 a.m. yesterday, time of the 911 call.
The first firefighters arrived on the scene at 11:44 a.m., noting with relief that no one was inside the vehicles struck at the time of the collision.
However, the driver was in a bad shape, the safety airbags of her vehicle having deployed under the impact of the accident.
The firefighters quickly freed the woman, and handed her over to the care of Urgences-santé paramedics. She suffered minor injuries in her misadventure.
“We were lucky no one else was injured in such circumstances [i.e. in a busy commercial parking lot],” said Vincent Mercier, chief of operations for Laval’s Fire and Safety Department.
