– Slip­pery roads cause ac­ci­dents

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Slip­pery road con­di­tions on Mon­day led to sev­eral road ac­ci­dents in the re­gion. At 9:30 am, a 911 call came in to the Regie de po­lice Mem­phrem­a­gog (RPM) about an ac­ci­dent on the Ma­gog Road near the over­pass of au­toroute 55. The po­lice found that both driv­ers im­pli­cated in the ac­ci­dent were hurt and two am­bu­lances were dis­patched to the scene. Two tow trucks were also called and three pa­trol cars were needed for safety rea­sons while the cars were hitched up and while the driv­ers were trans­ferred to the am­bu­lances. One driver, a 41 year-old man from Mon­treal, was taken to the CHUS Fleu­ri­mont with light in­juries while the other driver, a 35 year-old woman from Ste-Cather­ine-de-Hat­ley, was taken to the Ma­gog hos­pi­tal with light in­juries.

The RPM was called to an­other ac­ci­dent at 1:40 pm on route 141, near the Fitch Bay road, in Ma­gog. Two ve­hi­cles were in­volved. One of the driv­ers was a preg­nant woman who was taken by am­bu­lance to the hos­pi­tal as a pre­cau­tion­ary mea­sure. One of the driv­ers lost con­trol of their ve­hi­cle and hit the other ve­hi­cle. The slip­pery road con­di­tions seemed to be the cause of the ac­ci­dent.

Last Fri­day, March 4th, around 11:45 pm, the RPM stopped a ve­hi­cle on the Ayer’s Cliff Road, in Ma­gog, af­ter re­ceiv­ing in­for­ma­tion from the pub­lic. The sus­pect, a 44 year-old Ma­gog woman, was ar­rested for drink­ing and driv­ing. Her li­cense was sus­pended for ninety days. On March 6th at around 1:28 am, the RPM was called to the scene of an ac­ci­dent on Hat­ley street, in Ma­gog. Three cars, two of them un­oc­cu­pied at the time, were in­volved. A 35 year-old man from the Coat­i­cook re­gion was ar­rested at the scene for driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol and his li­cense was sus­pended for ninety days.
