Ottawa (Canada) Oct 07: One person died and another suffered serious injuries in a head-on crash Sunday on Highway 50 in western Quebec.
The collision happened at around 1 p.m. near the town of Grenville-sur-la-Rouge, Que.
According to the Sûrete du Quebec, the driver of a truck left their lane and collided with an oncoming RV.
Both drivers were rushed to hospital with major injuries, police said.
The driver of the RV, a 50-year-old man from the Montreal suburb of Mirabel, was pronounced dead late Sunday afternoon.
As of 6:30 p.m., Highway 50 was still closed between exits 233 and 239 for the investigation.
Safety on the two-lane highway between Gatineau and the Montreal area has been an ongoing concern, with the province of Quebec planning to install cable barriers upon a stretch of the highway closer to Gatineau in an attempt to reduce the number of collisions.
The SQ has asked Highway 50 drivers to slow down following a summer that saw two people killed and 18 injured.
