A motorist suffered severe injuries after causing a head-on collision on Highway 108 in Cookshire-Eaton.
The accident between a truck and a car occurred at 14h at the height of Wheeler Road. The driver of the smaller vehicle was taken to the CHUS to treat injuries considered serious.
“For an unknown reason, the driver who was driving towards Cookshire deviated from its trajectory. The driver of a truck that oncoming could not avoid the collision, “says the spokesperson of the Sûreté du Québec in the Eastern Townships, Aurélie Guindon.
Route 108 was closed in both directions to allow reconstruction experts to conduct the investigation.
“The driver of the car may have been victim of an illness before the collision. This is one of the assumptions is analyzed, “said Sergeant Guindon.
