4 injured after car collides with bus shelter in NDG
Four people were transported to hospital in critical condition Friday after the car they were riding in struck a bus shelter in Montreal's Notre-Dame-de-Grâce neighbourhood.
The collision occurred at around 1:40 p.m. on Côte Saint-Luc Road at Grand Boulevard, according to Montreal police spokesperson Const. Jeanne Drouin
Witnesses say the car crashed into the glass-walled bus shelter on the south side of Côte Saint-Luc, coming to rest in the park beside the shelter.
Drouin said all four people injured were occupants of the vehicle, and no pedestrian was injured. There was nobody in the bus shelter at the time of the crash.
Late Friday afternoon, police said the three passengers in the vehicle were in stable condition, but the driver, who sustained life-threatening injuries, remained in critical condition.
"Investigators will come here to analyze the scene, which will allow them to see what caused the collision today, if it was because of speed or another factor," Drouin said in an interview at the scene. "The investigation will determine that."
Officials for Côte Saint-Luc posted on the city's Facebook page that part of Côte Saint-Luc Road between Kensington and Hampton avenues were closed to traffic.
A spokesperson with the ambulance service, Urgences-santé, said the four victims are all in their 20s.
Four ambulance teams and two supervisors were called to the site, the spokesperson said.
