Two people were in critical condition after a head-on collision in Ste-Martine Wednesday night.
The accident occurred a bit before 7:30 p.m. on Route 138, roughly 30 kilometres southwest of Montreal. Sûreté du Québec Sgt. Stéphane Tremblay said one vehicle travelling west with two passengers apparently left its lane and crashed into an eastbound vehicle. The people inside the westbound vehicle were taken to a hospital, where they were being treated for severe injuries.
The driver of the eastbound vehicle was treated for less severe injuries, Tremblay said. He added it’s possible an icy roadway contributed to the accident.
