Accident claims two lives in Sainte-Barbe

Two individuals have died following a collision between two vehicles in Sainte-Barbe.

According to the Sûreté du Québec (SQ), the accident occurred between a car and a sport-utility vehicle (SUV) on Route 132 around 7:30 a.m. on December 4.

Both the driver of the car, who was in his thirties, and a passenger in his twenties were severely injured and immediately transported to a nearby hospital, where they were later pronounced dead.

According to unconfirmed reports, the victims were both employees of Groupe Tremblay in Saint-Anicet. In a post to social media, the company president, Jean-Pierre Tremblay, expressed his deepest condolences and support for the families of Mohamed Cherni and Ala Eddine, who were killed in a tragic car accident on their way to work.

Tremblay referred to the men as members of their professional family, known for their dedication, team spirit, and caring. “Their sudden passing leaves a huge hole in our hearts and in our organization… We will take all necessary measures to accompany the families of our missing colleagues and offer them any support they may need.”

The driver of the SUV suffered minor injuries.

“The driving conditions were very difficult. It is possible this was a contributing factor in this collision,” said SQ spokesperson, sergeant Louis-Philippe Ruel.

Police officers were dispatched to the scene Monday morning and the road was closed in both directions. Investigators were on scene to determine whether road conditions or other factors may have caused the accident. (SR; Canadian Press)
