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.
