A driver was seriously injured on Thursday night in Sherbrooke when she collided with a concrete wall on Terril Street, at the corner of Saint-Michel.
S ccording to witnesses met there by officers of Sherbrooke Police Service (SPS), the 40 year old woman was traveling at high speed before the impact occurred around 21h.
Drinking and driving could also be involved, notes Martin Carrier, spokesperson for the SPS.
“The lady had to be transported to the hospital where a blood test was requested to determine her blood alcohol level,” says Carrier. We do not fear for his life. ”
“She was driving more than 100 km / h.”
It was later known that the driver had caused three more accidents while driving on Highway 410 without stopping, adds Martin Carrier.
“She will have to meet later to find out what happened. She is not a known woman of our services, “he says.
“She could face charges of impaired driving, dangerous driving, and hit and run.”
Mr. Carrier regrets that events like this occur when services like Red Nose are in operation and that the national operation called Vaccine, impaired driving, is in court.
