(Marieville) An elderly woman in her fifties who was riding a motorcycle lost her life Sunday evening in Montérégie when the vehicle was hit from the front by a car traveling in the opposite direction.

Another woman in her twenties who was also on the motorcycle was seriously injured in the violence of the collision.

The tragedy occurred in the middle of the evening on Route 112 in Marieville.

According to the Sûreté du Québec (SQ), for a reason that remained to be determined, the car traveling west deviated from its trajectory and rolled into the opposite direction. The head-on collision occurred near the intersection of Rue des Roseaux.

Police report that under the impact, the two occupants of the motorcycle were ejected. Another car hit the body of the 50-year-old who was lying on the road, unable to avoid it.

The lady was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The person driving the car involved in the first collision was also taken to hospital. The police will eventually question him to get his version of the facts.
