GRANBY – Two women were killed in a multiple-vehicle accident near Granby on Saturday evening. Three more people were injured but are expected to recover.

The accident took place on highway 10 westbound around 7:30 p.m. when seven vehicles, including a semi-trailer truck,  collided in a construction zone.

The vehicles involved were either rolling very slowly, or were completely stopped.

The accident caused the temporary closure of the affected section of highway 10 west until 4:40 a.m. on Sunday.

An investigation is underway into the cause of the accident.

The driver of the truck has already been questioned by authorities, but a Sûreté du Québec spokesperson told Global News that they have no reason to believe that a criminal act was involved.
