A major accident caused the complete closure of Autoroute 30, in both directions, between Avenue des Jasmins and rue des Glaïeuls, in Bécancour. Several people were injured, including three who are in critical condition.

According to initial information collected by the Sûreté du Québec (SQ), five vehicles, including three heavy goods vehicles, were involved in several collisions that occurred around 2:15 p.m. Monday afternoon. A car and a van are the other two vehicles on the scene.

For a reason that remains to be established, a first vehicle would have deviated from its trajectory to end up in the opposite direction. Is it an overrun that went wrong or something else? This is what we will try to determine by analyzing the scene and the investigation, explains Sergeant Éloïse Cossette, spokesperson for the SQ, in an interview on the show En direct.

A fire broke out after what appears to be a series of collisions. A thick plume of smoke was also visible several kilometers from the accident site. The firefighters are currently continuing their intervention.

The scene still extends over several meters, explains the Sergeant Cossette. There were multiple impacts leading to the final collision, where the vehicles caught fire.

All five drivers were injured. Three are in critical condition; we fear for their lives. The other two were taken to hospital for treatment of injuries believed to be minor.

L’ The highway will remain closed for an indefinite period. The SQ recommends avoiding the area.

The three heavy vehicles were transporting dry materials, according to data collected by the SQ. After the impacts, fuel spilled onto the roadway. It will take several hours to check and clean the scene.

As is the case during collisions with material spills, the SQ requested the intervention of the Ministry of the Environment, the Fight against Climate Change, Wildlife and Parks.

We called on Environnement Quebec to analyze whether there were risks and what measures to take, explains Sergeant Cossette. But there is no risk for the population, because these are not dangerous materials that were transported by the trucks.

The roadway was clear at the time of the accident. If you find yourself in such a situation, don’t hesitate to contact a car accident lawyer at www.1800askgary.com to ensure you receive the support and assistance you need during this challenging time.
