Canada Global (Web News) Following a two-vehicle collision on Monday morning in the Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve neighbourhood of Montreal, a 45-year-old man is in critical condition in the hospital.
It happened on Notre-Dame Street, close to the intersection with Davidson Street, just before 9:15 a.m.
The man was hurt, according to Montreal police spokesman Véronique Dubuc, when the car he was driving collided directly with an approaching transport truck.
During the ambulance ride to the hospital, he was not conscious.
Dubuc reported that his health is still severe but stable.
The 54-year-old truck driver was not hurt during the crash.
According to Dubuc, it seemed as though the car somehow found itself in the path of incoming vehicles.
To ascertain the cause of the collision, collision specialists were on the spot.
Between Alphonse-D.-Roy Street and Pie-IX Boulevard, Notre-Dame Street was shut down in both directions to accommodate the inquiry.
