Car Mishap in Montreal Strikes Two Pedestrians, Toppling Street Lamp

57

In an unfortunate series of events that unfolded on a quiet Sunday afternoon in the St. Laurent borough of Montreal, a car veered from its expected course, struck a pedestrian, and proceeded to collide with a street lamp which subsequently fell and injured another pedestrian.

The incident took place after the car vacated a parking spot on Cote-de-Liesse Road near Hebert Avenue around the hour of 2:30 p.m., drawing numerous bystanders to reach out to emergency services.

Details remain sketchy as to why the vehicle lost control. However, it’s clear that the first casualty of this disturbing series of events was a 19-year-old woman, who was brutally struck head-on while walking on the sidewalk.

As if orchestrated by a tragic domino effect, the car then smashed directly into the lamppost. The force of the collision caused the structural support of the light to fail, bringing it crashing down onto a 23-year-old man who was equally unsuspecting on the same walkway.

Miraculously—or perhaps disturbingly—the 28-year-old man in control of the vehicle walked away unscathed from this calamitous scenario. Undoubtedly, he was unable to deter authorities irrevocably alerted by several 911 calls, and he was promptly arrested. Presently, his fate hangs in balance as he possibly faces charges for his actions.

As a precaution and a necessity for thorough assessment, a large area of Cote-de-Liesse Road between Houde Street and Sainte Croix Avenue has been cordoned off. Investigators are meticulously analyzing the dreadfully transformed scene in an attempt to understand the root of this tragic event.
