This morning we found a dash-cam video on YouTube. There was no description so I just thought I was going to see 2 cars bump into each other and maybe an argument between drivers. I definitely wasn't expecting to see a Mazda flying out of left field, smashing into the wall and doing two full spins before hitting the wall again.
We couldn't find any information on the state of the people in the vehicle, but hopefully it wasn't too serious since the driver who was filming drove away.
Hard to tell from the video but it looks as though the driver in the Mazda was trying to catch the exit and changed his mind at the very last second.
According to the information la Surêté du Québec provided LaPresse with, the cyclist was a 60-year-old woman who was initially brought to the hospital for her "serious injuries" and died a few hours afterwards.
So you've run out of local walks and already visited the neighbourhood surrounding just about every metro station. Fear not! Below are seven public transit itineraries for day trips to parks across Montreal Island.
These directions assume a weekday departure from the STM's hub at Berri-UQAM station. If you're travelling on the weekend, you might have to take a different route, depending on bus schedules.
Trace the winding ribbon of Quebec Highway 381 to the horizon to spot a glimpse of the Saint Lawrence River.
An administrator for the Sentiers Québec Charlevoix, the group responsible for the Mont du Dôme trail, tells MTL Blog that though it's open, the trail becomes particularly fragile as the snow begins to melt.
Visitors are therefore advised to avoid the hike during the melting season and check the Sentiers Québec Charlevoix website and Facebook page for the latest updates on trail conditions.
Moreover, spring and fall visitors need to be prepared for wet and muddy conditions that could make the hike difficult (think mud up to your ankles), the administrator says.
