A 16-year-old girl and her 59-year-old father were killed when their motorcycle collided with the car of a woman who had stopped to allow ducks to cross a highway.
The driver involved in a fatal accident on a highway south of Montreal Sunday could face two charges of criminal negligence causing death. Quebec law prohibits stopping a vehicle on a highway.
The accident occurred around 7:20 p.m. at the intersection of Highway 30 and Highway 15 on the south bank of the St. Lawrence River.
The mother of the girl and spouse of the man driving the motorcycle were riding on another motorcycle and witnessed the tragic incident.
“The woman was arrested Sunday night and released,” said police spokesman Ronald McInnis. “We have completed our investigation and have handed the case over to the Crown prosecutor who will decide if charges are laid.”
