Dan­ger­ous roads last week­end

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Last week­end, snowy and windy con­di­tions made driv­ing dif­fi­cult in the re­gion, lead­ing to sev­eral ac­ci­dents. On the ter­ri­tory of the Regie de po­lice de Mem­phrem­a­gog seven ve­hi­cles went off the road but no-one was se­ri­ously in­jured. How­ever, there was a se­ri­ous ac­ci­dent on Satur­day, Jan­uary 5th at 10:20 am. In a head-on col­li­sion on Ma­gog Street in Ste-Cather­ine-de-Hat­ley, three peo­ple were hurt: two men and one woman. One of the vic­tims re­mains in sta­ble con­di­tion af­ter re­ceiv­ing a se­vere head in­jury. The loss of con­trol on the slip­pery road in a curve in the road was the cause of the ac­ci­dent.

On Satur­day af­ter­noon at around 1:45, an 86 year-old Ma­gog woman was hit by a car when cross­ing Che­nier Street. The driver had his or her vi­sion ob­structed by an­other ve­hi­cle and didn’t see the woman. The ex­tent of her in­juries was not re­ported by the po­lice.
