Quebec, Canada - A family from New York was injured early this morning when their vehicle rolled over on a Montreal highway and crashed into a lamppost.

Sources told VIN News that the occupants of Toyota Sienna were a young couple with a baby from Brooklyn, who were traveling to Montreal for Succos with their grandparents.  The accident happened on Highway 15 near St. Mathieu de Laprarie, about 30 miles north of the New York border and approximately 18 miles south of Montreal.

All five occupants of the minivan were taken to area hospitals and authorities told CTV News Montreal that they suspect that driver fatigue may have played a part in the crash which took place at approximately 3:15 AM.  No adverse weather conditions were reported in the area at the time of the accident.

Four out of the five occupants of the vehicle have been released from the hospital. The fifth has been transferred to a trauma center but is expected to make a full recovery.

I don't understand how, of all the highway accidents that happen every day, this one is particularly newsworthy--especially when, baruch Hashem, everyone involved is expected to have a full recovery.

I agree that we should learn from this story what we can. But while I question whether the story is worthy of VIN's attention, I don't want to malign the victims even if I think they made what could have been a fatal decision.

Too late to still be awake and fully aware to drive.

Maybe that's the point.

Driving at night is a lot more relaxing and has a lot less drivers on the road and therefore avoids traffic. but it is extremely important to pull over when it is getting hard to keep your eyes open. You cannot fight it. People think that they could. if you feel like you are getting tired, pull over at a rest stop or get a motel room. It is not worth it. most accidents are because of fatigue.
