Two people were seriously injured in a road accident Thursday in the late afternoon, in Saint-Félicien, in the Lac-Saint-Jean.
The face-to-face meeting occurred on highway 169 between the two vehicles, says the Sûreté du Québec.
The jaws of life were required to remove at least one of the victims.
The injured, a man and a woman, were taken to the hospital, where one does not seem to fear for their lives.
The police investigators are investigating several hypotheses, including that of the distraction, to explain the collision.
