Two pedestrians were hit by vehicles yesterday evening less than two hours apart.
The first pedestrian was travelling from east to west, at 7656, des Laurentides Boulevard, which is located between Riopelle and Rémillard streets, in Auteuil. The driver was heading south when the collision occurred.
“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. “The victim was a 61-year-old man.”
The second incident took place on Cartier Boulevard.
A 37-year-old woman was crossing Cartier Boulevard to get to that terminus of the same name. However, she was hit by a vehicle travelling east.
The SPL said the victim’s in serious condition, and that we fear for her life. The driver, in her 40s, was treated for a nervous shock.
For both cases, the SPL favours the thesis of accidental events.
