At 1h am this morning an SUV rear ended a heavy snowplow at high speed on Highway 40 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The accident that miraculously didn't kill anyone happened in the westbound lanes of the highway just west of the St-Charles interchange in the West Island borough of Kirkland. Police, fire and EMS responded to the call urgently in multiple emergency vehicles. The driver of the SUV had to be extricated with the help of firemen. Other fire crews blocked lanes with a firetruck to protect the scene from upcoming traffic. Steve Kouloumentas from Urgences Santé explains that the driver of the SUV is in his 20's and suffered multiple traumatic injuries to the upper portion of the body but is expected to survive. According to Kouloumentas he and another patient were transported to a trauma centre. The latter patient was the driver of the large snow removing vehicle, a woman in her 30's. She suffered minor injuries and was transported to hospital wearing a neck collar. Paramedics at the scene reported to him that the car had apparently been going at high velocity when colliding with the back of the larger vehicle. After extricating the solo patient, firemen looked for the car battery in the badly mangled wreck in order to disconnect it. Smoke was seen coming out of the engine compartment and SIM crews had hoses deployed for prevention.

Ce matin à 1h un véhicule de type VUS a foncé à toute vitesse sur l'arrière d'une déneigeuse dans les voies est de l'autoroute 40. Le violent accident a eu lieu environ 200 mètres à l'ouest de l'échangeur du boulevard St-Charles à Kirkland. Les pompiers ont du désincarcérer un patient des décombres, qui a ensuite été transporté en ambulance suivit d'une voiture de police. La portion avant du véhicule montre de sévères dommages ainsi que le derrière du large véhicule de déneigement. Un autre patient a aussi été transporté en ambulance, portant un collier cervical. Le porte parole de Urgence Santé Steve Kouloumentas explique dans une entrevue que le conducteur du véhicule est dans la vingtaine qu'il a subit de multiples blessures au haut du corps. La conductrice du camion lourd de déneigement, une femme dans la trentaine a aussi été transportée en centre de trauma pour y soigner des blessures mineures.
