At 11h last night a chain reaction multi car accident had all eastbound lanes of Highway 40 shut to traffic near the St-Jean overpass in Pointe-Claire, a borough of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Initially, a first accident was reported eastbound H40 at the St-Charles overpass but upon evaluation firemen found multiple accidents past that location. The first crash scene was located near Alston Ave, the second in front of the Holiday Inn Pointe-Claire, the third where a tractor trailer jackknifed near Victor-Davis Ave and the fourth at Doyon Ave, all in the eastbound lanes. At the third and most serious scene, a 18 wheeler semi truck came to a rest across almost all lanes. Two other vehicles at showed damage at that scene and one of them seems to have come in contact with the semi. Multiple occupants were assessed by paramedics and took place in the SIM's mass casualty bus. Two trucks started loading cars from the first wrecks and continued onto the next ones to put more cars on their flatbed trucks. During the length of the incident, all eastbound traffic was diverted but was allowed to continue on the service road next to the highway. Multiple firetrucks and other emergency vehicles were seen and heard gathering to the different crash scenes, sometimes causing confusion in their responses on the exact location of the high number of incidents. According to Steve Kouloumentas from Urgences Sante, multiple occupants from the cars were assessed and three of them were transported to evaluate minor injuries.

À 23h hier soir plusieurs accidents ont été provoqués possiblement en réaction en chaîne sur l'autoroute 40 près de l'échangeur du Boul St-Jean à Pointe-Claire. Entre autre, un camion 18 roues a fait une mise en porte-feuille, bloquant toutes les voies en directions est de l'autoroute à la hauteur de l'avenue Victor-Davis. Selon Steve Kouloumentas chez Urgences Santé, plusieurs personnes ont été évaluées par leur ambulanciers et trois personnes ont été transportées à l'hôpital pour soigner des blessures mineures. Il soutient qu'il s'agissait en fait de 5 scènes d'accident différentes s'étendant le long de l'autoroute 40 dans le secteur St-Jean. L'autoroute en direction est a été complètement barrée à la circulation pendant que les remorques s'affairaient au dégagement des voies.
