Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Staff

Last Fri­day, a thirty year-old man from Stanstead died trag­i­cally. At around 6:00 pm, a Sureté du Que­bec of­fi­cer who was pa­trolling on Rail­road Street, in Stanstead, was stopped by a cit­i­zen who was con­cerned about a man who was hurt and ly­ing on the ground. The of­fi­cer found the man to be un­con­scious and with se­ri­ous in­juries, in­clud­ing to his head. He was brought to the hos­pi­tal by am­bu­lance but died of his in­juries the next day.

Fol­low­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion at the scene and the in­for­ma­tion gath­ered from wit­nesses, it was dis­cov­ered that the man had been in a ve­hi­cle be­ing driven by a woman. An ar­gu­ment took place while the ve­hi­cle drove along Rail­road Street, and it was then that the man opened his car door and jumped out while the ve­hi­cle was in mo­tion. That fall proved to be fa­tal.
