A 74 year-old woman living on the Curtis Road in Stanstead East was rushed to the hospital last week after being assaulted by her daughter, a fifty year-old woman who lives in Stanstead. The victim was in her residence when her daughter showed up at around 7:30 am, last Monday, armed with a blunt object. The victim was hit in the head and received serious injuries. A neighbour who heard screams called 911. The suspect was later found near her home in Stanstead and arrested. According to the police report, the altercation took place after a lengthy conflict.
Last Wednesday, a truck pulling a 53 foot trailer filled with corn went off the road in the roundabout at the junction of routes 143 and the 147, in Waterville. Traffic was hindered for several hours because the trailer had to be emptied of the corn before it was towed away.
Five Americans were involved in an accident when their rented Mercedes ran off the Des Berges road, in Magog last week, and ended up in an eight foot deep ditch. The three passengers in the back of the car had to be released by the ‘jaws of life’ by Magog firefighters. The driver and the passenger in the front of the car had their seatbelts and received only minor injuries while the passengers in the back, who were not wearing seatbelts, received multiple injuries.
