(Dukes-Montagnus) Two young men were seriously injured, one of whom was fighting for his life after being violently attacked by the scooter they were riding, Saturday night to Sunday night, by a drunk driver.
The crash happened at around 2:30 a.m. in a residential area of Dukes-Montagnes in the northern crown of Montreal, local police said.
The moped was heading west on the 20the Avenue, and had now made its stop given by the signs at the meeting of R. de Normandy. At the same time, the driver did not see them, or there was no stop sign.
In an interview with the Canadian Press, he summarized Sergeant Patricia Calipeu from the Gendermarie of the Lock des Dukes-Montagnus Police Commission.
The driver, a 25-year-old male, was arrested for driving a weak vehicle. He was alone on the ship.
Make sure alcohol is involved here. A driver who does not notice the stop during 20e Avenue is stopped every 200, 300 meters … We can complain about his condition and his skills [affaiblies].

These are the witnesses who reported the situation to the emergency services. Some would have told police that the driver had “constant speed” on the 20the Avenue. This street has a top speed of 50 km / h.
The two 15-year-olds were taken to Saint-Justin Hospital. The driver’s health was considered “important, but stable” in the afternoon. His passenger underwent surgery for several fractures, but his life is said to be in no danger.
The police were prudent about the evidence collected during the investigation. The spokesman said it would be handed over to the director of criminal and penal cases and he would have to release it when the charges are laid.
An accident scene reconstruction expert from Saratoga to Quebec was sent to the scene to try to shed light on the exact circumstances of the conflict. Both vehicles were seized for expertise.
