A 27-year-old Laval man is in serious condition in hospital following a collision on Highway 20 in Pincourt November 20 around 7 p.m.
“The man was driving eastbound on Highway 20 and collided with the back of a transport truck,” said Sûreté du Québec Sgt. Daniel Thibodeau. Following the collision, the car landed on the median.
Firefighters used the 'jaws of life' to extricate the young man from the vehicle. The truck driver suffered minor injuries.
Police say alcohol may have been a factor in the crash and the car driver may face charges.
Both lanes of the highway were closed in the eastbound direction and traffic was rerouted onto boulevard du Traversier following the crash.
The investigation is ongoing.
