A teenager is in critical condition after being ejected from his scooter in a collision with a pickup truck in Drummondville.
Emergency services were called to go to Robert-Bernard Street in Drummondville for a collision between a vehicle and a moped, or a scooter, according to the Sûreté du Québec (SQ).
“The teenager was ejected and transported to a hospital center where we fear for his life”, explained Catherine Bernard, spokesperson for the SQ.
The van was traveling east on René-Lévesque Boulevard toward the highway and the scooter on Robert-Bernard heading east when the accident occurred.
“We are collecting the versions of the witnesses and for the moment, we are not able to know who went through the red light”, explains Ms. Bernard.
A collision investigation officer must go to the scene to clarify the circumstances surrounding the event.
