The Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM) has submitted a dossier to the Director of criminal and penal prosecutions (DPCP) in connection with the death of the cyclist Clement Ouimet, occurred on October 4.

The young cyclist of high level 18-year-old was struck by a motorist carrying illegally a half-turn while training on the mountain. The DPCP will decide if formal charges should be filed against the at-fault driver.

The City of Montreal was quickly put in place security measures temporary at the scene of the drama, where many u-turns illegal, were observed in the days following the death of the young man. Panels indicating the prohibition to carry out this manoeuvre were installed, as well as surveillance cameras and a display of speed. The wall separating the lanes in the centre of the road has also been lying a dozen feet.

In addition, a bike ghost-a tribute to Clement Ouimet was installed in October at the foot of mount Royal, at the precise spot where the cyclist has lost his life.
