A man and a woman, both 57, are dead after a single-vehicle crash Friday night in Shefford, Que., roughly 90 kilometres east of Montreal.
The crash happened at around 8 p.m. on Highway 243, also known as Chemin Foster.
Sûreté du Québec (SQ) spokesperson Claude Denis said the vehicle flipped over several times before crashing into a tree.
The woman, whom police said was driving, was found unconscious on the ground outside the vehicle.
The passenger was still inside the vehicle.

The identity of the victims has yet to be released, but Denis said both were residents of Shefford.
