Quebec, Canada - Brooklyn Jewish Family Heading To Montreal Involved In Highway Rollover Crash
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.
