The accident occurred in the early evening around 8:50 p.m. on the 7th row in Saint-Germain. According to information collected on site by Vingt55 and confirmed by the authorities, a motorist violently hit the rear of a spreader which was traveling on the 7th row.

Stuck in his vehicle, according to witnesses who rushed to the scene, the Saint-Germain firefighters were called with an extrication team. The man was removed from his vehicle, and paramedics quickly took care of the victim who was alone in his vehicle.

According to one of the drivers met, he had just taken the 7th row after leaving the field. After traveling a few hundred meters, the vehicle struck the spreader.

The driver of the vehicle was taken to the Drummondville hospital center, in a condition considered critical, confirms the Sûreté du Québec. The vehicle struck the rear of a tractor-mounted seeder equipped with tires. According to initial findings, the rear of the trailer is equipped with a triangle and signal and clearance lights.

The investigation will be able to determine whether the vehicle was compliant or whether a distraction or lighting may have played a role in this accident. The 7th row was closed to traffic during the investigation, confirms the spokesperson for the Sûreté du Québec in an interview with Vingt55.
