A 36-year-old man from Lachute, Que., has died following a pedestrian collision Saturday evening on Route 158 in the Laurentians.
Police say the incident occurred at around 6 p.m.
According to the Sureté du Québec (SQ), a man driving west hit the pedestrian, who is believed to have been walking on the side of the road.
“The man was transported to the hospital in critical condition, where he later succumbed to his injuries,” said Sgt. Marie-Michèle Moore.
The young driver in his twenties was taken to the hospital for nervous shock.
Police have not released the identities of either of the men involved.
The road was closed in both directions until 2:30 a.m. Sunday while investigators combed the site.
An investigation is still underway.
