Christmas for a family in Bas-Saint-Laurent soon turned dark when a 50-year-old woman found herself under a snowmobile and lost her life on December 25.
When the tragedy occurred at 2:30 pm in Sainte-Angèle-de-Mérici, a small town in Bas-Saint-Laurent, not far from Mont-Jolie, Sonia Perubey was a passenger on a snowmobile driven by her partner.
It was the second snowmobile crash since the start of the season, and the first to take the life of a mother on the same day in Saguenay – Lac-Saint-Jean.
For a reason to be determined, Ms.Me Bérubé would have lost control of the machine on private land at 6 p.m.e Ranking. Suguesreté du Québec’s spokesman Higue Beaulieu explains that the two snowmobiles continued to make a violent exit from the road where they were trapped under the vehicle.
Suffering from serious injuries, they were taken to hospital, but the death of the 50-year-old woman was soon reported. “The weight of the machine crushed his ribs. She was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the victim’s relative, Kyleine Perubi.
The life of his wife, who was in control of the plane, was not in danger, however, and he was seriously injured. In addition to the latter, Sonia Perubei is survived by her two young men, who lost their mother on Christmas Day.
“They obviously have a lot of problems …” the victim’s relative breathes, confirming that it was only a “stupid accident”.
A police officer from Sûreté du Québec, who specializes in conflict investigation, went to the scene to establish the causes and circumstances of the tragedy.
No hypothesis was given priority at this time, but the snowmobile was drawn for mechanical expertise.
Two deaths in one day
The play is not like 33-year-old Mylene Paquet, who died on Saturday in Notre-Dame-de-Lorette, Saguenay – Lac-Saint-Jean. She was critically injured in a collision with a gazebo when she was dragged behind a second snowmobile and tried to save her, but she died when her loved ones attacked a moose.
“These are two great tragedies. The season started two weeks ago in a few regions, ”said Michael Corneo, spokesman for the Federation of Snowmobile Clubs in Quebec.
