Jean-Pierre Brabant, an SPVM media relations officer, said police will be in contact with the driver in order to figure out how and why he lost control of the vehicle.

As of 12:45 p.m., Brabant said investigators were on the scene in Pierrefonds to try and establish the circumstances of the event.

TVA News reported that the driver "mowed down" a Hydro-Quebec pole, hit the girl — who was walking on the side of the street — head-on, and came to a stop by hitting an oncoming car driving in the opposite direction.
