Four people were injured and then taken to hospital after a collision involving two motorists and two pedestrians late Friday afternoon in western Montreal, along Highway 15. A police investigation has been opened.
The first calls were made to 911 around 4:25 p.m., to report a “collision involving two motorists and two pedestrians”, very close to the intersection between boulevard Décarie and rue Jean-Talon Ouest, in the borough of Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce.
Arriving at the scene, the first police officers immediately assisted two pedestrians aged 28 and 59. They had suffered serious injuries and were transported by Urgences-Santé to a nearby hospital. Fortunately, their lives would not be in danger.
Moreover, the drivers of the two vehicles involved were also taken to hospital after sustaining injuries, but they were not in critical condition either at the time. They are an 84-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman.
“A wide security perimeter has been erected, in order to allow our investigators to carry out a complete analysis of the accident scene. The sector is to be avoided for the next few hours, “said agent Julien Lévesque, spokesperson for the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM), at the end of the day.
It is not known for the moment if a preliminary hypothesis is retained by the investigators to explain this collision. No details have filtered on this subject.
