A 71-year-old man lost his life after being struck by a 10-wheel heavy truck on Route 132 in Saint-Anicet on October 11.
The man was crossing the highway on foot near the Saint-Anicet Golf Club around 1:15 p.m. while the truck was being driven westward on Route 132.
The victim has since been identified as Joe Hackett, a teacher from Montreal. He was taken by ambulance to the Suroît Hospital in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield where he was pronounced dead. The driver of the truck also suffered minor injuries.
