A 32-year-old woman from Marseille, France has died following a head-on collision November 4 on Highway 40 eastbound in Vaudreuil-Dorion near Exit 26.

Sûreté du Québec (SQ) spokesperson Sgt. Ingrid Asselin reports the French resident Leila Mahnaoui was travelling alone in the vehicle in the westbound direction around 9:30 a.m. when her car crossed the grassy median into the eastbound lane colliding with another car.

Emergency responders used the ‘Jaws of Life’ to extricate the woman from her car. She was transported to the Valleyfield hospital where she later succumbed to her injuries.

Collision investigators were on the scene until the road reopened around 1 p.m. Asselin said it’s too soon to say whether speed, alcohol, or distracted driving were factors in the crash. Toxicology reports are pending.

The man driving in the other car sustained minor injuries.
