A two-year-old boy has died after a car crashed into a ditch in Ormstown in the Montérégie region around 1 p.m. on Tuesday.
According to the Sûreté du Québec (SQ), the 60-year-old driver lost control of the car and went off the road on Highway 138.
The little boy was taken to hospital but later died from his injuries.
The driver and a four-year-old girl, who was also in the car at the time, suffered minor injuries.
SQ spokesperson Daniel Thibaudeau says alcohol was not a factor in the crash but an investigation is ongoing as to why the driver drove off the road.
