A dead man in a sheer at La Tuque

(La Tuque) A man in his twenties died when he lost control of his vehicle and swerved in a curve overnight from Saturday to Sunday, in La Tuque, Haute-Mauricie.

The Sûreté du Québec (SQ) reported that the emergency services were called to go to Fitzpatrick Road, around 3:45 a.m., after being informed by a person who heard the sound of a horn being pushed.

Two workers from the Canadian National Railway Company who were in the vicinity went to the Jeep vehicle which was on the roof, said Sergeant Audrey-Anne Bilodeau, a spokeswoman for the SQ.

The driver was alone on board. He was taken to the hospital in the area where he was pronounced dead.

A collision scene investigator was dispatched in the morning to analyze the scene and try to shed light on the swerve.

The swerve occurred in a “very slight curve,” said Sergeant Bilodeau.

The police say they are waiting for information from the coroner’s office. There are several hypotheses that are still being studied to explain the causes and circumstances of the swerve.

“A toxicological analysis for example could be requested on the body of the victim to ensure that there were no drugs and / or alcohol,” said the policewoman in particular.

Mechanical expertise should also take place on the vehicle.
